Hello everybody and welcome back. I hope you have had a lovely half term break and are ready to start a new topic.

Our topic for spring 2 half term is Spring Is Coming.

Over the next few weeks we are going to find out about different types of weather, what happens in Spring, signs of spring, growth, planting and much, much more.


We are going to find out about the different types of weather. Listen to the National Geographical weather book read aloud. It will explain the different types of weather and explain the meanings of many weather words.

Grown-ups, please could you ask your child “what is their favourite weather?” Could you then send me an email to let me know? I am going to collate each child’s choice and make a pictogram to show their choices. When I have had your emails, I will put a picture on the webpage.

I wonder which will be the favourite weather of reception 1?

I would like you to complete your weather diary for this week. See the attached document. You can either print it out or make your own weather diary. I would love to see how you get on. Remember to use finger spaces and correct letter formation. Grown-ups, if your child needs support with writing, please write the words for them to write over.
