Year 4 – Strawberry Plants, Bug Hotels and a Royal Assembly!

Good morning Year 4,

I hope you are all ok. It has been lovely to here from lots of you this week about the fun things you have been doing at home. I have been spending lots of time in my garden and it seems like the mixture of sunshine and the rain clouds that were here last week have helped my plants grow. I was very pleased when I checked my strawberry plant to find that there were lots of strawberries growing, one of which was nearly ready to be picked! However, my excitement was short lived when, later that evening, a very cheeky bird decided that they wanted to eat the strawberry instead and flew away with it! Can you believe it?!

Even though that cheeky bird ate the strawberry, there are many insects that have a positive impact on plants as they grow. I read that the average garden accommodates more than 2,000 different species of insect! A great way to help increase the number of these insects in our gardens is to create a bug house or bug hotel! The Wildlife Trust website has some great information on how you can create your own bug house at home.


Later this morning, at 11 o’clock, the Duchess of Cambridge is leading a a special online assembly based on the theme ‘spread a little kindness’. If you would like to watch when the assembly goes live, you can click the link here – If you are unable to watch at 11, the assembly will be added onto the Oak National Academy website later on, meaning that you will be able to catch up if you miss it!

Let me know if you make a bug hotel or watch the Duchess of Cambridge’s assembly. I would love to hear about how you get on or what your favourite part of the assembly was!

Have a great day everyone!

Miss Harris

    That’s amazing that your stawberies have grown. We have lots of plants growing in our garden we have grown lots of tall green leaves and we can see 1 orange bud and another bud which we cannot see the colour of.
