Turtles Class - Summer 1

Welcome to the summer term! We hope you had a fantastic Easter! We really enjoyed taking part in all the Easter activities last term- especially the Easter Bonnet Parade and we had a fantastic time at Waterworld.

Last term we spent lots of time planting flowers and visiting the local garden centres. We are keeping a close eye on the beautiful sunflowers that we planted and we are excited to see who’s grows the highest! The children enjoyed listening to the books ‘Eating the Alphabet’ and ‘The Hungry Caterpillar’. We enjoyed tasting and exploring all the different fruits and vegetables that appeared in the stories.

This term we are going to be exploring the topic Colour. This will involve lots of sensory play and opportunities to develop Maths and Language and Communication skills. We are also taking part in regular visits to Rosliston Forestry centre to walk around the grounds and prepare for the whole school sponsored walk which will take place in June. We hope to be outdoors in all-weather so please remember to send in your child’s wellies if the weather is wet!

Many thanks for your continued support!
