As part of our learning about where our food comes from we have been planting vegetable seeds this week.
We have also enjoyed making miniature gardens.
Whilst we were looking for information books about growing beans we came across another Traditional Tale; Jack and The Beanstalk. We have turned the role play into a Fairy Tale Castle and have been busy making a giant beanstalk out of junk! We have enjoyed taking part in a Jack and the Beanstalk dance and we have invented magic beans and designed packets for them. We have also put Jack and the Giant in the 'hot seat' to find out why they both were a bit mean. Then we helped them write to each other to make friends.
We have been trying to make things as long as possible and we have been exploring how to compare and measure length.
Beans take a lot of counting so we have been grouping and ordering before we count accurately too.
