In Early Years this half term our theme is growing. The children are going to be learning about how to take care of living things and what plants need to grow. They will plant their own seeds and investigate what the best conditions are for a seed to grow. As part of this theme, the children will also learn about minibeasts and will compare how many minibeasts they find in the winter months with the warmer spring/summer months. The children will explore minibeast habitats and create their own bug hotels. They will learn about the life cycle of a caterpillar and the importance of bees.
