Spring 2 Half Term 2022
The children have had another busy half term. Our Talk for Writing book has been “The Tiny Seed” by Eric Carle. We have been busy preparing our Nature Garden and clearing sticks. We used the sticks to enjoy wool winding and then we planted seeds and have been enjoying taking turns to water them. We also spent time planting seed potatoes.
We have been learning about celebrations and enjoyed making Mother’s Day cards and drawing pictures of our mummies. We looked carefully at daffodils and painted pictures. We also noticed how the daffodils changed over time. We enjoyed egg painting, egg rolling and a shapes Easter egg hunt and we were delighted to welcome a parent who came and talked about Easter. We have been enjoying our outside area – playing in the mud kitchen and painting on large sheets of paper.
We joined in a whole school project to share the book “We are all wonders” by R.J. Palacio. The book enabled the children to talk about themselves and others and they looked in the mirror and worked really carefully to produce a wall display of self-portraits: “We are all wonders”, which looks beautiful!
We also took part in Science Week and welcomed another parent to come and share activities which helped the children understand what a scientist does.
The children enjoyed dressing in red to raise money for Comic Relief.
