We have been discussing the cherry blossom with the children and how it is important in the Chinese culture around the time of the Chinese New Year. We followed this up by looking for the signs of spring in our school environment and painting cherry blossom pictures.
The Nurture Group children have been growing a hyacinth bulb in class and in wellies outside. They have been observing the difference and how they have been growing. This has been helping them to name the parts of a plant and to understand what plants need in order to grow. Growing cress has been very popular and the children were keen to taste it.
