Write instructions about how to grow your own beanstalk. Remember we planted our own seeds when we were in school, can you remember what we had to do?




Maths scavenger hunt – Collect these things: 5 things that are soft, 2 things that are hard, 3 things that are yellow, 3 things that are light, 1 thing that is heavy (ask your parents to help you to pick it up!) and 1 thing that you think I would like. 

How many objects did you collect altogether? 

Challenge: Try to add the numbers that link to the questions below. Count both sets of the objects to work out how many you have altogether or you could use your fingers to help you.
