As an entry point for our current IPC unit, “Flowers and Insects”, the Year 1 students had an awesome time on a gardening day when they had the opportunity to plant seeds. They enjoyed this experience tremendously and are excited every morning to look and talk about the growth process of the seeds. They wrote instructions on “how to plant a seed”. The children learnt about what plants and insects need to grow. They labelled and named the different parts of a plant, and engaged in plant art and craft activities. Science experiments will be conducted to investigate whether plants need water and light to grow. During a mini beast hunt, using magnifying glasses, they will label and name the different parts of the body of an insect. To link our English lessons to IPC, the children will listen to stories like “The Tiny Seed”, “The Very Hungry Caterpillar”, “Jack and the Beanstalk”, and many more. They will retell and act out these stories; rewrite sentences and paragraphs of the stories while using the correct punctuation and sentence openers.
