Caring for our Beanstalks

Having planted our broad beans, we now have the responsibility of looking after them!

In science, we are testing some to see whether they actually need both water and sunlight with some experiments the children came up with. Don’t worry though, none of the children’s are involved in this!

Developing our ball control in PE

This week we’re looking at controlling the ball through rolling. The children were rolling the balls along the lines of the playground and back and forth to each other. We even managed a game of Dodge Ball once we’d learned a few skills. Great fun!

Growing our beanstalks…

We’ve had all kinds of fun this week with our new giants topic.

Of course, we couldn’t get away without growing some beanstalks! I wonder how tall they will get? Or whether there’ll be anything at the top!
