Spring and Growing
This half term we have had a great time learning all about Space! This week we are learning all about Easter and Spring time and we have our Easter workshop on Thursday.
When we come back after the Easter holidays we will be learning all about growing. We will have lots of fun planting our own beanstalks and watching our caterpillars transform into butterflies. Next half term we also have our peppa pig muddy puddle walk to look forward to. Please try and get as many sponsors as you can to win some fabulous peppa pig prizes!
Over this half term we have been learning all about Winter. We created our own igloo's and learned all about animals from cold countries and Inuit people.
Then over the last two weeks we have been learning all about the Chinese New Year. We read and acted out the Great Race story, we prepared and tasted Chinese food and we made our own Chinese lanterns.
