Blackboard Spring term 23 Belonging

During the Spring Term, we are thinking about “How do living things change”

During this term, the children will learn that the world is full of living things. They will develop their curiosity when they explore their local environment. Over time children will identify how their environment has changed. Children will learn about plants and how they grow and change. They will also discover how animals grow and change. They will use their communication skills to describe living things and how they change. Children will have opportunities to play and learn both indoors and outdoors.

Daily Reminders.

Monday – Fruit money.

Tuesday – Reading books will be changed.

Wednesday – Music session with Mrs. James fortnightly.

Thursday- Welly Walk.

Friday – PE
