Flower Power and Super Veggies
For our final topic, Year R requested to grow their own edibles,
Green fingers at the ready… for ‘Flower Power and Super Vegetables!’
We will explore the book ‘Supertato’ and the sequel ‘Veggies Assemble’,
Our super vegetable representations will make the Evil Peas tremble…
Our learning environment will be invaded by an army of Evil Peas,
We will have to fully inspect the classroom and even check the cheese!
Working together to save carrot who is stuck to the conveyor belt,
Evil Pea has frozen our class superheroes… how will we make the ice melt?
We will take part in an invention challenge to construct Evil Pea traps,
And explore where our fruits and veggies come from using world maps,
We will measure our sunflowers and watch them grow as tall as can be,
And use our estimating skills to calculate the age of our Red Barn trees!
I wonder… which of our super veggies grow above or below the ground?
And what does a plant need in order to grow strong, safe and sound?
P.S. Worried about which days we will be working up a sweat?
If so, lettuce reassure you; please don’t fret.
Our PE day (Friday) is always the same,
The day we participate in the big game.
To further tie in with the veggie theme,
Shall we play ‘squash’ or become a runner bean?
We’ll be pumpkin our muscles ’til they are showing,
There won’t be mushroom left when we start growing.
And when everything is put away, all tidy and neat,
We’ll all agree that our first year at Red Barn was super hard to beet!
