This half term our topic is called 'New Life'! We will be enjoying a wide range of stories such as The Very Hungry Caterpillar, Oliver's Vegetables, The Growing Story and Jack and the Beanstalk.
We will be learning about the signs of Spring in Science and changes that occur from Winter to Spring. We will explore animals that come out of hibernation and the new animals that are born around this time such as lambs and chicks that have become associated symbols of Easter. We will focus upon the Easter story in RE, learning about Jesus' death and resurrection with activities such as making an Easter garden and prayer flowers.
We will also be exploring fruits and vegetables, the places they come from and the climates they need to grow. We will compare food grown in other countries with that grown in our own and consider the conditions we have here. We will also be going on nature walks in our local area, using maps to explore the green spaces around our school.
