Welcome back for the summer term! Hopefully we will be able to get out and about more this term and enjoy some sunny weather! Our class topic is titled In the Pond and we will be visiting our local pond a number of times and using our own maps to make sure we don’t get lost. Acorn class are going to be investigating life in the pond and especially the life cycle of frogs and butterflies. We are hoping to create our own pond in a box and a pond in the garden. We will using our senses to find out about the world around us. We will be learning about what makes a good friend and how to be a good friend too. We are hoping for lots of fun in the sun this term.
