 Week 1

Our literacy lessons this week are inspired by the book

The Promise

written by  Nicola Davies and illustrated by Laura Carlin

 

On a mean street in a mean city, a thief tries to snatch an old woman’s bag. But she finds she can’t have it without promising something in return – to ‘plant them all’. When it turns out the bag is full of acorns, the young thief embarks on a journey that changes her own life and the lives of others for generations to come.

Biome in a bag 

It is a tiny environment!

We made  different biomes and changed the amount of light and
water they get. This way we could  see how plants grow in
different environments.
