Meet Eddie, Bob and Rosie!
Class 1 have been learning about new life! The children have enjoyed hatching and looking after some ducklings. They have taken responsibility for cleaning out the ducklings cage and changing their water and food. They even got to help bath them!
Reception enjoyed sharing their learning with their parents at our 'Topic Sharing Morning' on Tuesday 17th May. The children have been learning all about 'Growing' this half term and have found out about plants, life cycles and caring for our environment. We had lots of fun creating art inspired by our topic.
Reception enjoyed developing their skipping skills in PE as part of 'National Skipping Day'.
