Welcome back

The summer term has begun and with it we have started our growth topic! Over this half term the children will be planting a variety of seeds and watching them grow.

We have new role play areas in each classroom: a garden centre and a flower shop. Children have had great fun planting seeds and buying flowers in their discovery time!

As the days get sunnier and warmer we hope to be outside a lot more and giving our outdoor area a bit of TLC by tidying and planting some summer flowers and plants.

In Maths, so far, we have looked at days of the week, seasons and halving. This week we will be looking at doubling. Can children recognize a double in objects and numbers?

In English we have been looking at instructions on how to plant a seed and few of us have had a go at writing instructions ourselves! This week we will be looking adjectives and using them to describe the Giant from Jack and the beanstalk.

We had a busy start to the week and had our school trip to QE country park, the children enjoyed themselves and go to go on a Double Decker coach! The children had so much fun that a few fell asleep on the way home on the coach!

Next week we look forward to continuing tidying up our outdoor area and observing our caterpillars for any changes!

What a busy term it will be!
