Plants and flowers are so beautiful and it would be great to see if you could create one of your own.

You can make it out of anything you have! Paints, crayons, paper, newspaper, card, chalks, tissue paper, and more! You could even make it out of old leaves!

Here are some examples to inspire you!

Plants are great for so many reasons. One reason is very important! You can eat them! We will talk about this more later in the term but for now I will leave you with a few recipes using plants! 


One of my favourite recipes using plants is soup!

Here is a basic recipe for soup you can try! Have a go at putting in different plants such as vegetables, herbs and salad items. 

Soup recipe


  • 200g chopped raw vegetables, such as onions, celery and carrots
  • 300g potatoes
  • 1 tbsp oil
  • 700ml stock (this is water with a stock cube or powder added to it)




  1. Fry 200g chopped raw vegetables with 300g potatoes, peeled and cubed, in 1 tbsp oil for a few mins until beginning to soften.

  2. Cover with 700ml stock and simmer for 10-15 mins until the veg is tender. Blend until smooth, then season.

This simple recipe will create delicious soup and the great thing about it is that you can add any vegetable, salad or herb plants to it and get a different soup every time!

Music and Movement

Here is a lovely PowerPoint about a growing song. It is sung to the tune of London's Burning.

It is important for the children to keep active and so this great bean game will help tire them out. The good news is they will already know how to play the game as they have done it in PE! 

The rules are very simple - it is a listening game so the children will have to listen to know the next instructions. Go through two or three different bean actions first (you can add more later) so the children know what the 'beans' mean. Then start them walking around and shout a bean at them. the children are to do the bean action ie frozen bean means stand still and don't move. Then you can change the action to another bean. 

Look at the document below to find out the names of the different action beans.
