Delicious. That was simply delicious. She very rarely came across a strawberry, but whenever she did she always made the most of it. Chewing through the sweet, juicy flesh, she savoured every mouthful.

Now, though, she was full, and slowly eased herself (shell and all) out of the hole she had made in the side of the strawberry. It was time to explore another part of the garden…

Continue the story of the snail. Try to describe everything she might come across during her sloooooow journey! Use plenty of adjectives in your sentences.








Create a title page for our new topic… Plants.
Include drawings and the following key vocabulary: seeds, bulbs, water, light, temperature, growth, germination, soil, nutrients. Native plants: grass, clover, daisy, buttercup, dandelion, holly, daffodil, tulip. Plants we grow: lettuce, tomato, radish, bean and pumpkin.

You all received an envelope containing a plastic bag and 3 Runner Beans. Place the beans inside the plastic bag and add some water. Attach this bag to a sunny window and observe how the beans sprout and grow over the coming days. This process is called germination.

Start a bean diary in your sketch books. Sketch the changes you observe everyday. Take pictures and email them to me and let me know how it grows….
