This half term we will be using this classic text to investigate the lifecycle of a butterfly 🦋 and will be watching metamorphosis right before our very eyes.
You can keep up to date with the changes by looking at our Caterpillar 🐛 Diary which will be updated regularly.

As this half term comes to a close we have been thinking about Easter and the celebrations which take place. We have been thinking about why Easter is important to Christians. Maybe you could ask your child what they have learned and watch some of the videos below to reinforce this learning at home too.
We would like to wish you all a safe and happy break 🐣
We have explored the characters within the story and recreated them using new techniques, learning to tear paper and use this to collage. We have even begun to sound like the characters too - responding to the key refrains of the text in different voices! We love this story!
This topic has encouraged us to think about making healthy choices. Our roleplay area has become the healthy café and we took away the unhealthy foods from the cupboards and put them into the sin bin! Foods high in sugar have been swapped for healthier natural alternatives. This ties in wonderfully with the National Sugarsmart campaign.
This week we have been looking at alternative versions of the story and learned a really catchy song!
The children asked me to put some links to the youtube videos onto the website so they can show the people at home too! What a great idea!
We are so glad you've found our class page. Thank you for taking the time to explore it. We learn best through play and every week is packed full of exciting learning opportunities which are irresistible! At St John's we are very proud of our Early Years children.
In The Early Years Foundation Stage, the children follow a play-based curriculum that will provide them with the opportunities to
· Develop their confidence, independence and social interaction
· Encounter a range of new and exciting experiences, through the power of play
· Build upon the skills they have as they leave the home environment to start school
· Develop these skills as an individual
· Prepare for the next stage in their primary school education
Throughout the school day, the children will learn in a range of different ways. Through whole class focused group work, small group learning, adult-led activities, child-led activities and independent play.
Please find additional details about this academic year below.
