In Nursery we have been reading Jack and the Beanstalk. We looked at real flowers and thought really hard about what plants needed to live. We decided plants needed sun light, water and soil. We even named parts of a flower, the children really impressed us by being able to name petals, leaves, seeds, stem and even roots. The children described the roots as straws which drink the water from the ground!
We planted our very own magic beans… we make sure we give them lots of water and the children have placed the plants in the Investigation Area next to the door so they will get lots of sunshine! The children have been watching their beanstalks grow and are keeping an eye out for the Giant!
