Reception, Year 1 & 2 activities

Jam Sandwiches

Reception, Year 1 and 2 have been learning about instructions in English. The children told Ma’am the instructions on how to make a jam sandwich. We then made our own Jam sandwiches. Once the sandwiches were deliciously gobbled up, the children sequenced pictures in order and wrote the instructions down.

Plants

In Science, Reception, Year 1 and 2 are learning about ‘Plants’. Our class went to Valentine’s Park and made a collage of ‘Wild Plants’. We planted some runner beans and French beans in the soil and left them in the Sun to grow. Everyday someone waters the bean plants. Our bean plants are growing taller and taller. In English, we are learning to write instructions. Instructions help people to learn or do things. Our class wrote down instructions and then made jam sandwiches. We spread the butter and jam, folded our bread and then enjoyed our sandwiches. Yummy!
