We hope that you had a wonderful half term and would like to take this opportunity to welcome you back to school for this exciting lead up to Easter.

Our teaching will be focused around the topic ‘Terrific Transformations’ . During spring term two we will be reading: ‘Mr Wolves Pancakes’, ‘The Very Hungry Caterpillar’, ‘Dora’s Chicks’, ’10 Little Chicks’ and ‘Jasper’s Beanstalk’.

During our RE lessons we will be exploring the topic ‘growing’  where we will be learning about signs of new life and growth in natures, learning about what happens during Lent and listening to the Easter story.

During our PE sessions, Reception children will be following the Yoga Bugs program. Nursery children’s focus will be around playing simple games using the parachute.

This half term we will be:

Dressing up as our favorite book characters and listening to Fairy Tale stories as part of our World Book Day celebrations.

Writing recipes of how to make pancakes and sampling our very own homemade pancakes.

Learning about the life cycle of a caterpillar and retelling the story of the Very Hungry Caterpillar in our own words.

Watching eggs from the Living Egg Program hatch and grow as we learn about the life cycle of a chick.

Handling and learning how to care for our chicks.

Labelling and sequencing the life cycle of a chick and caterpillar.

Planting our very own beans and learning about what they need to grow and develop.

Learning and ordering the days of the week.

Travelling in different ways outside on our outdoor equipment and apparatus.

Using our imagination and construction homes for animals.

Using paints and crayons to create observational drawings of flowers and animals.

In our workshop areas, we will have a role-play Pancake house where we can order some delicious Pancakes. We will also have a Castle to enable us to retell traditional tale stories. Outside we have a Fruit and Vegetable shop so children can learn about healthy living.
