A visit from a giant!

Greetings Platypuses!

This week began in a very exciting manner – we came in to find lots of chairs knocked over and flour all over the floor; a giant had been in our classroom! He left us a note saying we had to grow beanstalks for him or else he would grind our bones to make his bread! 

So we have been very busy this week planting beans and writing instructions for how to plant them. Hopefully next week they will have grown a little bit 🙂 

What does a plant need to grow? Listen to the songs below if you need a reminder. 

Can you retell the story of Jack and the Beanstalk to your adult? 

What were the 3 things Jack took from the giant? 

We had a great Big Talk session where we discussed different reasons why you could say Jack was a bad person and different reasons why you could say Jack was a good person. In the end most people thought Jack was a bit in-between – he had done both good and bad things. 

What do you think? 

Can you give two reasons why you think this? 

In maths we have been learning to measure things. If you have a ruler or blocks at home challenge yourself to measure 3 things. Which is the tallest? Which is the shortest? Which is medium sized? Can you put them in order

It will be Blue Team‘s turn for Show and Tell on Tuesday. Please only bring in toys when it is your colour team’s turn for Show and Tell as they can easily get lost 😦

Homework is due in on Mondays

Please wear your PE kit on Monday and make sure all your belongings (school uniform, PE kit, book bag etc.) have your name in/on them. 

On Wednesday we are having a Rights Respecting Open Morning and it would be wonderful to have lots of Platypus adults there! 9-10am. 

Have a wonderful weekend full of exploring, reading, writing, sleeping, eating, singing, dancing, homework, talking and of course don’t forget to comment on the blog!
