This afternoon you are going to learn about germination. Look at this amazing time lapse clip showing a seed germinating and growing into a plant: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=w77zPAtVTuI
Imagine you are a seed, slowly germinating, pushing your root down into the earth and sending a shoot up to the light. Write an acrostic poem, vividly describing the journey of the germinating seed.
GERMINATION or GERMINATING
Here are some words to help start each line:
Germinating, gradually, growing, gently, easily, every, effortlessly, earth, roots, rising, reaching, moving, my, in, inching, I, next, now, nearly, a, almost, above, and, the, tall, tiny, thin, on...
Try to use technical vocabulary too: roots, stem, stalk, soil, earth, seed…

Please practise your spellings daily. This week’s spellings are below. You will need to see which ones you want to work on. If you can spell the Year 2 spellings, then do the Year 3/4. We will be focusing on 10 spellings every week. On Friday, get someone at home to do your spelling test with you!
