Happy New Year!
We’d like to wish you a warm welcome back to the new term and hope that you’ve all had a restful Christmas.
Our topic this term is called Splendid Skies. We will start the term with a ‘nature’s treasures’ walk to search for seasonal signs. The children will make observations of trees, respond to questions such as ‘Can you see leaves? What colour are they?’ and investigate what the weather is like, looking upwards to the clouds to look at their shapes, sizes and colours. We will collect items to talk about back in the classroom such as buds, dried leaves, wildflowers, sticks, leaf litter, acorns, pine cones and other natural objects.
Amongst other things, we will be writing and presenting weather reports, making weather art, investigating clouds, making kites rain catchers and observing seasonal changes.
What a term we have in store!
