Nature and the Outdoors WC 22.02.21

Nature and the outdoors:
I hope you have all had a wonderful half term break and a good rest ready for the start of the next half term. We hope to have our children back in this half term but until then we will continue with out themed weekly learning. 
As the days are getting a little brighter and the weather a little warmer we are taking this week to enjoy the outdoors and everything it involves. 
First challenge: Can you go back to the place you stood for your picture at the beginning of the term in January and take another? What has changed? 
  • Is it brighter? 
  • More leaves on the trees? 
  • Are you wearing less layers? 
  • Has your hair got longer?
  • Have you grown taller?
