We hope you all had a wonderful Easter holidays and we can't wait to hear all about the adventures you have been up to.
The chicks have grown so much and have started to develop feathers. Our flower seeds and potatoes which we have been growing in the poly tunnel have grown so much.
This week we are going to be talking about what we have been doing in the Easter holidays and mark making a picture of our favourite thing we did. It would be great if the children could bring in pictures or objects to support them with telling the group about their Easter holidays. We will also be looking after the new chicks and talking about how they have changed since before the holidays. We have got some gardening to do with planting some of flower seeds into new pots and covering up our potatoes. We are also going to be drawing our self portrait for our class tea towel. There will be a letter in the next couple of weeks with an order form attached to order tea towels. Everyone in the class will be on it.
Can you bring in some pictures or objects from your Easter holidays?
