Topic work

We are now starting a new topic ‘How does your garden grow?’.  We are learning about plants and their growth.  We hope you enjoy these activities and have fun. If you can think of any other activities, we would love to see them.

Activity 1

What is the purpose of a scarecrow?

Watch the Wizard of Oz. If you haven’t got the film you can watch a clip on You tube.

Can you find the scarecrow in the film? What does a scarecrow do? What is their purpose?

Can you design your own scarecrow? You can draw a picture or you may even create your own 3d scarecrow. You may use some reclaimed materials; Eg old clothes, straw, grass, hay, felt, newspaper, ribbon and buttons. Let your imagine run wild!
