Spring Term 2021

We have loved welcoming back the children after lockdown. We have had lots of fun and everyone has worked really hard in phonics and maths and are making fantastic progress. Take a look at all our wonderful learning below:


We have learnt all about Spring, new life and even saw baby ducklings hatch! We've had lots of new resources to play with too, we've had lots of fun!


We've enjoyed listening to new stories such as Jack and the Beanstalk. We found and planted magic beans. Built and created the giant's castle and made our own beanstalk!

We have had lots of fun learning all about Spring, new life and baby animals. We have been planting, painting daffodils and even saw ducklings hatch. It has been very exciting to see things grow!

We have learnt about Easter celebrations and why some people celebrate it. We learnt the Easter story and have decorated our own eggs. We have made chocolate nest cakes and finally we had great fun on an Easter Egg Hunt!
