Things That Grow..

We've had a really  busy week keeping up with our topic of things that grow and, according to our teacher, we've had a lot of 'cross curricular' work on the go. 



Carrots and Potato work well
5 a day is easy

We've been.........collecting and collating information,  creating art work of sunflowers using hammer beads, we've also created some really funny creatures using fruit and veg,  draw our very own healthy eating plate, measured our sunflowers and, would you believe it, we actually spent time digging for worms, it was brilliant!




We need a bigger ruler!
This is amazing, it's growing as I watch!
So how, exactly, does it move through the earth?
Look how many I found!
