Reception - Growing Plants

Friday 10th March 2023

Reception are learning about the topic of 'growing' in reception this half term. The children have been very busy planting and caring for cress, beans and sunflowers which is helping them learn first hand about what a seed needs in order to grow and about the process of growth. The children took their cress heads home once they had grown and were set the challenge of harvesting their cress seeds at home, preparing something to eat containing cress.

We have received these photos and we can can see so much learning going on at home with this challenge including learning about food, food preparation, hygiene, fine motor skills (harvesting the cress with scissors, squeezing the mayo, peeling and crushing the egg, buttering and cutting the bread!) We hope it was tasty but being brave enough to taste something new is a fabulous achievement in itself!

Well done for completing our home learning challenge so thoroughly. 🌟🤩
