Spring Term 

Last term we enjoyed our topic of I Spy Sky. The children loved the space station role-play indoors and the weather station out. This half term it is Changes, Changes, Everywhere. The children have suggested ideas such as growing beans and plants, baby animals and looking at healthy foods that grow. Thank you to those parents that have also suggested ideas, we will try and ensure all ideas are covered. We will also be looking at Easter towards the end of term.
