To finish our week thinking about the garden, we are going to look further at how plants pollinate. Start by reading through the powerpoint about pollination ( Download Pollination Powerpoint ) . Once you have done this can you label this plant ( Download Label Parts of a Flower Activity ) using the key words ( Download Flower Part Labels ), or you can draw your own and label it with the key words. After this, try completing this activity ( Download Activity ) to test your knowledge.

Other ideas;

Try this online game all about pollination (Click Here and choose the life cycles game).

Use a digital camera to take photos of flowers and label them on the computer digitally.

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 inspired 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.



For good health and wellbeing, it’s really important to keep talking to your parents, relatives and friends (even if that’s via technology!). It’s true that, “A problem shared, is a problem halved.” Ask your relatives about that phrase and they’ll tell you that it’s old but still true!

To help get you get chatting, here’s a board game all about your feelings ( Download Emotions board game ). You could play it with your family in your house or at distance with other friends and relatives while you chat online!

  Positive affirmation:

We are often not very kind to ourselves but saying positive things can make us feel better. This is called positive affirmation and helps with stress and worry. Repeating positive statements affects your mind and helps to turn what you’re saying into reality!

Try using this, ‘I Am an Amazing Person!’ activity to get you started ( Download I am an Amazing ). Read and complete the sentences and see how positive you then feel. You could draw or write down your ideas.
