Spring Term 2015

Learning about each others families Learning to serve ourselves Walks in the wild gardens
with our friends

During Autumn Term we had a lovely time.
First we got to know each other and learnt about our families. We learnt about the plants. We searched for circle shapes in the wild gardens. We had a splashing time in the puddles and had fun in the grounds - do you think we have shrunk? We planted bulbs ready for the spring time. We learnt about winter animals and hibernation and we wore out PJ’s to nursery. Miss Rebecca introduced us to some new yoga moves.
We finished off the term with a visit from Santa.
