For Spring Term we will be learning about Seasons and Cycles.
We will begin by learning and exploring the season of Winter. The children have asked lots of questions about snow and ice. We will then compare Winter to the other seasons. In the second half of the term we will be looking at the life cycle of plants and other living things.
W/B 25th March
We have loved planting sunflower seeds and are continuing to look after them carefully! We can't wait to see the shoots peeping through the soil! We will be learning the parts of a flower and working on labeling diagrams clearly. We will be discovering information about the artist Van Gogh and his famous paintings Sunflowers. In numeracy we are continuing with our theme of measuring, this week we are measuring weight in grams and kilograms.

The bible teaches us about justice in the context of love.
