This term our topic is Traditional tales, we will cover a range of tales which children will become familiar with. We will look at mini beasts at the end of term and explore the differences between Africa and the UK. This term we will be asking children to share pictures of their family to help us create a family tree.

Our Chicks

We have been very lucky to have watched 9 baby chicks hatch this term. The children loved watching them grow and were so interested in what they were doing! The children wrote chick diaries on everything that happened and created some fantastic chick pictures! 

Spring Term 2

This term our topic is called "Eggcelent Explorers". We will be starting off exploring all things Dinosaurs. We will be holding a dinosaur day and writing some fact files about dinosaurs. As the term moves forward we will have a special treat for the children, we will be having our own chick eggs to hatch! We are hoping to conclude Spring Term 2 with a parents Easter egg hunt so watch out for information on this!
