To finish our week thinking about the garden we are going to look at the different parts of a plant and flower. 

​To begin, watch this video on BBC Class Clips about the parts of a plant:


Next you could have a go at drawing a plant and labelling the parts. If you want to take your learning outside in the lovely weather, you could also have a look for different types of flowers and plants in your garden. Choose some, draw or take a photograph of them and see if you can label them. Do all the plants look the same? What is similar? What is different? Use your observational skills to explore. Just remember not to pick any of the flowers or plants unless your grown up says it's ok to do so :-) 

 More Ideas;

Listen to Flight of the Bubble Bee a famous piece created by Russian composer Nikolai Rimsky-Korsakov.

Now can you write a poem from the view of a pollinating bee or draw a picture inspire by the music you hear?



With anxiety over health, social distancing and changes in routine, this is a difficult time for children and adults. Here are some suggestions to help your wellbeing and mental health. This week, the activities focus on talk and positive affirmation.



It’s super important to talk about how you feel and it is true that, “A problem shared, is a problem halved.” Ask your relatives about what that phrase means. They’ll probably tell you that it’s an old saying but very true!

To help you talk about your feelings, here’s a board game to play at home ( Download Emotions board game ) . Have fun playing it while chatting!

  Positive affirmation:

Sometimes, we are not very kind to ourselves but saying kind things can make us feel better. This is called positive affirmation. It helps us when we are sad. Repeating positive things helps you feel better. Simple!

Try using this, ‘I Am an Amazing Person!’ activity to help you ( Download I am an Amazing ) . Read and complete the sentences and see how much better you feel. You could draw your ideas instead of writing them!
