Research 5 plants that grow in the continent of Africa. You could draw an image of each plant and mindmap around the image. You could include facts about that plant and why it grows in Africa specifically.

I’d love to see some of your fantastic findings- you could either email me – or tweet us @year5bsm / @bostonstmarys


Cut in to an item of fruit or a vegetable. Use this as a stamp by dipping the item in to the paint and pressing against the paper. You could experiment with different colours and see if you can use the stamps to create an overall image. You could also try cutting a sponge in to a fruit shape to use as a stamp. I look forward to seeing your fantastic art work.


Research the process of photosynthesis and how this contributes to the growth of plants. There are lots of videos on BBC bitesize and Youtube. Once you have done this, complete the worksheet attached.


Using the resource attached – have a go at making your own scarecrow. You may not have all the materials but you could use recycled materials to make a smaller version and design your own scarecrow on paper. I look forward to seeing your creations!

Bonus point if you can explain why we need scarecrows!
