This half term the children have continued in their journey of becoming ‘super scientists’ as they have gained the knowledge and skills necessary to grow their own plants.
The children excelled in taking care of their plants putting all their new found knowledge into practice. Their investigations continued further as they learnt all about deciduous and evergreen trees.
To support our school ethos, the children wrote a persuasive letter to Mrs Cooke to ask if we could begin composting at school. These letters did the trick and Mrs Cooke gave permission to proceed! Therefore, we have created our own compost heap to begin the composting process here at Forsbrook.
The children engaged a range of fictional texts such as Jasper’s Beanstalk and the traditional tale of Jack and the beanstalk. From this, the children wrote their own fantasy story of Jack and the Beanstalk….with a twist.
During this half term the children stepped back in time to explore what life was like in Forsbrook village looking at shops, roads, clothes and much more and creating a timeline dating back 100 years up to the present day.
