Our first Welly Wednesday this year.

This half term we are learning about life cycles.

We will be looking at the life cycle of plant, a butterfly and a frog. We will be getting very creative and making lots of fun things!

We will also be spending a lot more time outside.

On a Wednesday we will be putting on our wellies and going out to explore and look after our outdoor area. This will include planting some seeds, looking after them and watching them grow!

We might get a little bit dirty but we will be having lots of fun!

This half term our topic is all about colours.

We look at lots of different colours and go on an exciting colour hunt. We explore colour mixing to see what other colours we can make. We paint rainbows and learn songs about colours.
