This half term the children have been learning all about growing, this has involved the story of Jack and the Beanstalk, the children have planted their very own ‘magic beans’ and have been observing them grow, and learning about what helps them grow.
The children have also been learning about how they grow and what they need to help them become strong, be healthy and continue to stay healthy. Our older children are continuing with the Read,Write, Inc program and are really enjoying these sessions and they’re all doing amazingly well.
