Tiptoe through the tulips as your senses discover the blooming foliage and enchanting fragrances of flowers and herbs. Round and round the mulberry bush we go, planting bulbs and seeds, and then watch them grow beneath sunshine and showers. Explore the astounding world of the scented garden, but be careful, there are some wild and dangerous plants out there that do astonishing things. Don't touch them. Use the marvellous properties of plants, flowers and herbs to make an exceptional gift for somebody special. Everything is coming up roses. Why not grow your own?
This project runs for the first half of the Summer term. Homework contributions can be made throughout the half term, please make sure your child brings in something that they have worked on at home.
Below are some ideas for each project, try one of these or something else project related.
Science - Plant bulbs and seeds at home and watch them grow. Send in your photographs to show off the progress of your growing plants and we will pop them onto our class’ website page.
Computing – Download the free ‘Stop Motion Studio’ app and create a stop motion animation of a growing seed like the one below. (Grown-ups, do not worry, your children have spent all of Spring term creating stop motion animations and it is actually easier than it sounds!)
Maths - Grow 2 sunflowers and keep a weekly record of their heights. How tall are they in cm? How tall are they in inches? Compare the measurements with <, > or = symbols (Which number would Mr Chomp the crocodile prefer to eat?)
Geography – Create a fact file of different plants around the world. Research and compare plants from different world habitats. What sort of plants could live in the desert and why? What sort of plants could live in the Arctic?
Art – Collect some wild flowers and flatten them between two heavy items. Once dried out, glue them
At the end of the project homework period your child will receive either a bronze, silver or gold project homework badge.
Bronze = a basic piece of project homework was completed
Silver = a good piece of project homework which has clearly taken lots of time to complete
Gold = an excellent piece of project homework which has clearly taken lots of thought, time and effort to complete
