Spring Half Term 2
Our theme this half term is ''Get, Set, Grow!" We will be learning all about the growth of plants and will be learning the names of the parts of a flower. We will also be learning all about farm animals and their babies. We have an exciting trip to Smithills Open Farm to look forward to where we will be able to feed the animals and learn all about how cows are milked amongst other interesting activities! We will be having our very own caterpillars and observing them as they change into butterflies. This will lead on to us learning all about the life cycle of a butterfly and of a sunflower. Our stories will include; The Pig in the Pond, Jack and the Beanstalk, The Tiny Seed, Baby Animals and The Hungry Caterpillar. What a busy half term!
