April Planning

April Planning

During April we will be focusing on Spring and Easter. The 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 gardening & planting to help them understand the world around them better by caring for plants. We will also learn all about life cycles, that of the chicken, butterfly and the frog. 
For Easter we have planned Easter egg hunts and some great arts and crafts to foster the children’s expressive arts and design.

Resources to support learning at home for the month are:

Books of the month:
The Tiny Seed by Eric Carle
Skip Through the Seasons by Stella Blackstone

Songs 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!
