Summer 1 - Come Outside


In Summer 1  we will be learning all about the great outdoors. We will learning what plants need to go, planting seeds and learning about the life cycle of a butterfly.  We will be basing our lesson around the books:  A seed in need (non-fiction), Jasper's Beanstalk and The Very Hungry Caterpillar.  We will also have caterpillars in school.  We will watch the caterpillars as they grew, turn into a cocoon and then into a butterfly. 


Please look at our medium term and long term plans.
