April planning:

We will be focusing on a Spring and an Under Water theme. Some munchkins have already noticed the change in season and we will be sure to plan more munchkin trail walks outside now that the weather is on the up too. Just like last year we would like all munchkins to very much be involved in in gardening & planting to help them understand the world around them better by caring for plants. We have started to do this already and will revisit the garden and plants often. We do hope your cress is growing nicely too 😉
As for our Under Water theme, we will be providing lots of fun play activities such as books, songs, toys, arts & crafts to teach your munchkins all about sea life and the under water world.

Resources to support learning at home for the months are:

Books of the month:
The Very Hungry Caterpillar by Eric Carle
Skip Through the Seasons by Stella Blackstone
The Snail and the Whale by Julia Donaldson
Sharing a Shell by Julia Donaldson

Song of the month:
Spring is here (sung to Are you sleeping) I see robins,
I see bird’s nests,
Butterflies too,
flowers too.
Everything is growing,
The wind is gently blowing.
Spring is here, spring is here!

I plant a seed (sung to I’m a little tea pot)
I plant a little seed in the cold, cold ground.
Out comes the yellow sun, big and round.
Down come the raindrops soft and slowly
Up comes the flower grow, grow, grow!
