This term we will be learning all about Allotments. This will tie in to lots of our subjects such as the science behind plants and how they grow; where different fruits and vegetables are grown all over the world and what healthy treats we can make and design for ourselves!
Research 10 pieces of fruit / vegetables and identify their country of origin on a map. You could colour code the areas by creating a key. I have attached a map you may choose to use below.
I’d love to see some of your fantastic maps- you could either email me – firstname.lastname@example.org or tweet us @year5bsm / @bostonstmarys
Take a look in your garden or take photos on a socially distanced walk; sketch a scene and try to identify some of the different plants / trees you come across. Have you noticed which plants attract certain animals or creatures?
Research pollination and create a fact file. It’s up to you how you present this, it could be in the form of: poster, leaflet, PicCollage, PowerPoint etc.
Create a PowerPoint presentation explaining what plants need in order to grow and survive. There are lots of website links that may help you – such as BBC Bitesize and there are also lots of child-friendly videos on Youtube. If you prefer, you could use your research to make a poster on paper – just remember to make it look beautiful!
Please access one of the links below and complete the workout / dance. I’d love to see some of your fantastic moves!
