Our Minibeast Day - We made minibeasts and then learnt about minibeasts (stick insect; giant African snail; millipede; tarantula and scorpion) - some of us were very brave and decided to hold or touch and some of us watched closely.

During Spring Half Term we have explored Chinese New Year; travel (including aeroplane flight, maps and different countries) alongside making sure our brains are happy. We are also beginning to use our phonics in our writing and reading and learning our numbers to 20 and number bonds to 5, shapes and doubling!
