Spring 2

Welcome back! It is going to be another exciting and busy half-term!

Our topics for this half-term are 'Ready, Steady, Grow' and 'Signs of Spring.'

In the Ready Steady Grow project your child will take part in practical activities to explore where food comes from. They will learn what seeds and plants need to grow and grow a variety of plants. They will explore what constitutes a healthy lifestyle, including eating fruit and vegetables, exercise and teeth brushing. They will find out about life on a farm and about baby animals.

Ideas to support your child at home

*Visit your local library and find books about farms to share.
*Make a shopping list together and go to the shops to buy the food.
*Grow some quick growing plants or make a cress head.
*Talk about healthy foods.

In the Signs of Spring project, your child will go on a walk to look for signs of spring in the local area. They will learn about the changes that happen in spring, including the weather and living things. Springtime festivals will also be explored.

Ideas to support your child at home

*Go on a spring walk and take photographs of the signs of spring.
*Make a weather diary to observe how the weather changes.
*Visit a pond and look for signs of new life, such as ducklings and frogspawn. Visit again over time to observe changes.
