What am I? and Scavenger Hunt


Can you match Mrs Blades' descriptions to the correct photographs? 



  • I have tiny, delicate blue petals.
  • I am fuzzy and when the wind blows I disperse my seeds. 
  • I have a long, thin stem. At the top my beautiful flowers branch off in al directions.
  • I like to grow amongst the grass. I have lots of thin white petals and a yellow centre - much like an egg!
  • I have interesting dusky pink petals.


Can you  find out what a WILD flower is. Helping hand; Think back to our learning about WILD animals and those that we keep as pets. What was the difference between the two?  Use this to decipher the meaning of WILD flowers. 


Challenge: Can you go on your own nature walk in your garden and find any WILD plants or flowers? Write your own descriptions and challenge somebody at home - or send them in to me and I will upload them onto the website :)

Coming Soon - Woodland Crown


Look out for my Woodland Crown example.

In the meantime have a go yourself!


Here's the instructions;

1. Cut a strip of cardboard long enough to go around your head and overlap slightly.

  • the strip should be 3 or 4 inches wide and long enough to go around the head

2. Collect natural objects from your garden or on a nature walk. E.g. leaves, flowers, twigs and nuts.

3. Decorate your crown with natural objects (and maybe a sprinkling of sequins and glitter if you have any).

4. Fix the cardboard crown together with staples, glue or tape.  

5. Wear your crown with pride :)



Instructions have lots of 'bossy' verbs. Remember: a verb is a doing word - something you can do. Remember when we played Simon says to learn what a verb is. e.g. sit, stand, jump, spin. These are all things we can do. 

Bossy verbs posh name (imperative verbs) 'tell you what to do'.  Challenge: Can you spot the 'bossy' verbs in the instructions above? I'll start you off with a helping hand; mix, stir and chop are all examples of bossy verbs - 'they tell you what to do!'



Coming Soon - VE Day Celebrations


Look out for how we will be celebrating VE Day in school! 

In the meantime, find out about VE Day and plan and prepare for your own VE Day celebrations!
