Our creative project for this holiday is to make a mini scarecrow. The children have been busy planting different flowers and vegetables in our garden and they are beginning to grow beautifully.

Now we need some scarecrows to keep the birds away and protect the plants.

The design is as broad as your child’s imagination. You could use wooden spoons or small canes as a basis for your scarecrow.

Please write your child’s name on their scarecrow as we will be putting them in our garden.

I hope you all have an enjoyable week and look forward to seeing everyone again after the holidays for the last half term in year 1.

Easter Holiday Creative Homework

    Our theme for next term is Plant Power.    

Take a look at the ideas below and choose one or more to complete:

  • Compose words for a song about plants/ flowers / trees. Words can be set to a familiar tune or you could compose a tune of your own. Can you perform your song and record? Produce a song sheet with the words of your song. Bring into school or email to the school office marked ‘homework class 1’. You could add actions/ dance moves to your song too.
  • Create your own box/container garden.

                      e.g. 

  • Make 3D models of flowers/trees.
  • Create a poster with pictures and descriptions of the different plants that you have found in your garden or local park/wood. (Maybe it could be a lift the flap designed poster where your picture is on the flap and when you open the flap there is the name of the plant and a description of it underneath).
  • Pressed flowers with the name and details of the plant that the flower has come from.
  • Can you invent a board game based around our theme. e.g. playing pieces/ cards could be plant pots/flowers/trees. Maybe you could collect different parts of a flower during the game and the winner is the first person to collect a complete flower or Plant Bingo!

 

I hope you have fun with this creative homework and that you have an enjoyable holiday.
