This half-term we have started to learn about Growing and Life Cycles. We have learnt how plants and flowers grow and have been going to the allotment where we have planted peppers, oregano and tomatoes in our beds. We have weeded, raked and watered the plants. We will soon be able to pick (and eat!) our strawberries that were grown last year. We have also said hello to the school chickens whilst we have been at the allotment.
In English we have been reading ‘The Enormous Turnip’. The children have been re-enacting the story and we have filmed the play to show the children who are starting at our school in September. We have had a giant’s castle in our role play area for the story ‘Jack and the Beanstalk’ and the children have enjoyed dressing up in giant's clothes and writing fairy tale stories in there.
