Lesson 4 - Introduce Weight and Mass

(See link above and link to activity sheet)



At the start of each half term we observe our deciduous and evergreen trees in the school grounds and talk about seasonal changes. We can't do that at the moment but perhaps you can look at a deciduous tree and an evergreen tree in your garden or when you are out on a walk. 

What do you notice, especially on the deciduous trees? 

Can you name the different parts of the tree?

What is the weather like? 

Can you find out what time it goes dark and what time it gets light in the morning?

Why are the hours of daylight longer at the moment? 

What other signs of Spring and early Summer can you spot? 

If you want to see baby birds in their nests visit the Spring watch website.
