Lifecycles - Summer 2019

This half term our Mini Adventure is all about ‘Lifecycles’.   We will be exploring the lifecycle of a butterfly, frog and a sunflower through a range of stories and engaging and exciting activities.  We will be planting seeds and looking at them as they grow and change. We are going to collect some frogspawn from our wonderful school pond that has been recently revamped.  This will enable the children to observe the changes over time and talk about and record what they see. The children will be encouraged to communicate what they see using a range of scientific language and vocabulary.  

Lots of our learning will take place outdoors in the school grounds and we hope for lots of warm, dry weather.  To help us keep your children safe in the sun can you please ensure they come to school with sunscreen protection on every day. The children are welcome to bring extra cream in their bag but they will need to apply it themselves.  Please can you also ensure your child has a named sun hat or cap to wear too.
