Our theme this half term is Growth. We will begin by learning the story of the Jack and the beanstalk, other texts include The Hungry Caterpillar and The Bad-tempered Lady Bird as well as non-fiction texts. We are planting our own sunflower seeds. We have our very own caterpillars in class to observe and notice the life cycle developing and some eggs to watch hatch, which will be fascinating!
