Welcome back to school, we hope you all had a wonderful Easter!
Our learning theme for this term is: 'At the bottom of the garden!'
This term we will be learning about Plants in Science. As part of this learning we will find out about different plants in our environment, what plants need to grow and the life cycle of a plant.
