How to grow new vegetables from kitchen scraps.
Is it possible to regrow vegetables from the scraps you through away? You can use potatoes, carrots, lettuce ends... All the bits you would normally chop off and through away. And all you need is some water and a glass or jar.

Picture News - Wild Animals
We love our discussion time in school and this one is all about animals. Why don't you have a little 'circle time' with your grownups. I've added some lovely activities below for you as well.
Can you use some of your toy animals and investigate what shadows they make? Think about what causes a shadow and are they all the same. Draw around the shadow and leave it out for the day. Does the shadow change shape or size? Can you hide from your shadow? If the sun doesn't shine can you find a different light source to help you to create a shadow? Do shadows appear at night?
We have been learning all about animals and had the amazing visit from Whitepost Farm who let us look after Sheldon for the week. They also bought Jasper the rabbit, some guineapigs, the terrantula, hissing cockroaches and rats.
If your grownups have Facebook, ask them to LIKE the Whitepost Farm page. (Remember Internet safety and only use this under strict adult supervision)
They are keeping us updated about all the animals in their care and have also set little tasks and challenges for you to complete.
