This half term we are learning about Life Cycles and Growing.

 

We have planted cress and sunflower seeds and have enjoyed watching them grow. We left one set of cress seeds without water to see what would happen.

 

We also have some tadpoles and caterpillars in our classroom.

 

We look at the changes in them every day and have written about them and drawn pictures.

Beaumanor Hall

We had a great day at Beaumanor Hall. We went on a trail to find the Gruffalo and found lots of animal tracks on the way. Then we made our own dens in the woods and climbed the trees. After that we found some lost animals and had a tea party for them. Some children drew their own maps to show where they were going to look.

We also made some natural art with twigs, logs, branches and stones before having well-earned rest on the coach back to school!

Have a look at some of the photos of the day.
