Week 3 and 4- Plants and Recycling

Week 4- w/c 18/5/20


This week we have added some more activities about plants:

  • life cycles of beans, sunflowers and plants
  • flower art


We are also thinking about our environment this week and looking after it. One way is by recycling. We have included some links and activities you could do at home as well as a Twinkl story about looking after our environment called 'The Messy Magpie' with related activities.

You can look at recycling in your own house/garden and find out what happens, including the different types of recycling we have in our homes (different colour bins) or nearby ans signs you can find on packaging. You could even make a list of things that you had recycled and things you have put in the bin.
