The days are short and cold but there's still plenty to see and do outside. The joy of finding ice in the mud kitchen and filling the nestboxes full of straw to keep the hens warm...
Wassail. We'll be learning about the ancient practise of wassailing. We'll thank our fruit frees, sing some songs and drive out the spirits with lots of banging of pots and pans to encourage a bumper harvest this year.
Valentine's Day. We'll be learning about love and kindness and making gifts and cards to take home.
Our theme this term is Insects. We'll be learning where they live, what the look like and looking after our own stick insects. We'll be looking at insect ID guides, drawing and painting and reading lots of insect story books like 'Billy's Beetle' and some lovely Shirley Hughes poetry.
