Hello Reception 2 Families
Are you ready to find out more about Spring? Well, let's get going!
Thursday's Topic Activities
Yesterday's weather was very changeable wasn't it? It was cloudy, sunny, windy, warm, cold and rainy! All in one day! Well, that is Spring for you!
Today we will find out more about spring weather.
Mrs Cook will guide you through an information PowerPoint which is all about different kinds of weather...
A very long, long time ago a famous musical composer called Vivaldi wrote a piece of music called 'The Four Seasons.' This is the part that he wrote that was called 'Spring'. Have a listen, does it remind you of different kinds of spring weather?
Perhaps you could draw a spring weather picture whilst you listen to the music? Remember...
Rainbows! Sunshine! Rain! Wind! Clouds! Lightening!
