This half term will focus on plants and start with sharing the story of Jack and the Beanstalk. We will look after plants in the garden as well as plant some more of our own to help grow. We will look at some minibeasts that are in the garden and go on a hunt for them. We will find out what a gardener does. After studying the minibeasts, we will be able to create our own using different resources. We will spin our own spider webs using wool. We will celebrate May Day with lots of dancing and St. George’s Day by baking some traditional English scones. We will have a visit from Asda (Covid restrictions permitting) and be able to discover our favourite fruit after tasting lots of different types.
