Talk Homework : Go on a worm hunt. Talk about why worms are helpful in your garden
Worms, worms, worms this week. We have learnt so much about how amazing they are including how they breath through their skin, how they have bristles that help them to push their way through the soil and that they make cocoons for their eggs to hatch in. We hunted for them and found several in damp places. We have put one into a wormery so we can see how it creates tunnels. We enjoyed reading the book 'Yucky Worms' and making chalk drawings with adjectives to describe the worms.
In maths we have been counting on with addition and learning how we can put the bigger number in our brains to count on from.
We learnt a new song 'There's a Worm at the Bottom of the Garden' and really enjoyed singing assembly outside with the KS1 children and Mrs Farmer.
Our five caterpillars are now big and fat and we are hoping the form their chrysalises over the weekend.
