  • Continuing our learning on 3D shapes, noticing that 2D shapes are flat and 3D shapes are solid.

  • Re-visiting positioning, thinking about on, under, next to etc.
  • Enjoying lots of messy play.

  • Learning about Summer and re-capping over the seasons this year.
  • We will be practising for sports day during our PE sessions.
