Welcome back!

Welcome back to our final half term of the year! We hope you all had a lovely half term break and are ready for the exciting weeks ahead of us.

We had a very busy last half term following our topic ‘Let it Grow’. We took part in lots of activities involving listening and retelling stories, planting and growing, observing, painting and printing, cooking and many, many more. A few of the activities are listed below, talk to your children about them to find out more!

  • Stories we read – The Tiny Seed, Jack and the Beanstalk, Oliver’s Vegetables and Jasper’s Beanstalk.
  • We grew our own cress, then made egg sandwiches and ate them.
  • We planted our own magic beans and watched them grow. They are now planted in the garden  – I wonder if we’ll have a giant come to visit us?
  • We looked closely at different vegetables, drew them, painted them, chopped them and made soup from them. A display all about this work will be going in somewhere in school shortly – can you spot where it is?!
  • We ran our own garden center role play area.
  • We planted some flowers in pots to brighten up our garden.

We also had a very special week celebrating the wedding of Prince Harry and Meghan. We made crowns and decorations for the classroom, watched the wedding of Prince William and Kate to see what a grand Royal wedding looks like, had a miniature Windsor set up on on small world area with the castle, church, well wishers and the wedding party all there and finally we had a special tea party at the end of the week complete with our very own wedding cake and cucumber sandwiches!

This half term we will be going on a Camping Adventure. We will be using our camping role play area, finding out about the seasons, going on animal hunts and using our Forest School site again on Fridays. We cant wait!!
