We have been looking at growing this week and together we have read the story ‘Jasper’s Beanstalk’.
Following on from the story we have explored different beans: kidney beans, black-eyed beans, cannelli beans, and runner beans. We have sorted them by size, colour and type.
The children wanted to grow their own beans, therefore we planted a runner bean in a plastic bag, and now are waiting for them to grow. The children know the importance of sunlight and water when growing a plant. Our plastic bags are on our windows, to allow them to catch the sunlight.
After reading the story ‘How to Grow a Dinosaur’, we discussed what our beans could grow into, and what they would like to happen.
