The children will have the opportunity to plant a bean (or maybe a sunflower!) and consider what it will need to grow successfully. We will be making the most of the glorious weather by spending time in the nature trail, pond and outdoor classroom.
As we move through the term, we will explore all kinds of animals. We will link well-known books such as 'Dear Zoo', 'Handa's Surprise' and 'Elmer' to the play. Many children seem keen on ocean life, so no doubt we will deep-sea dive into some sea-themed learning.
