Spring Term 2 – Hello Spring!

This term we will travel from pre-historic times to the present. We will celebrate the onset of springtime, as bulbs and buds begin to grow, and the birds come home from their migration to warmer places. We will delight in the wonder of nature, using Mike’s Meadow as our base. Our classroom and garden will bloom with spring flowers and perhaps a beanstalk or two!! We will use familiar stories and new ones, to support our learning of plant and animal life in spring. Pond dipping and life cycles will support the children’s understanding of how seasons affect change in our environment. We look forward to warmer weather and lighter days.

Our Vision Statement for EYFS at Batheaston Church School

At Batheaston Church School we endeavour to promote a love of learning; where interests and talents are nurtured and challenged, empathy is fostered and friendships formed. A child entering Apple Class will embark on a creative, engaging learning adventure. Our environment is rich in first-hand experiences with time given to dream, aspire and achieve. Independence is encouraged and risk-taking is celebrated within safe and secure surroundings.

As a team we are passionate about the education of young children. Activities planned provide a wide range of opportunities to enable children to play, work, collaborate, apply skills learnt, test ideas and narrate their inner imaginings. We aim to build children’s academic, social and emotional well-being so that they can thrive both within our walls and the world beyond.
