Beat Band BoogieSpring 1
Beat Band Boogie
Here comes the marching band. Left, right, left, right. Step in time to the beat: 1, 2, 3, 4; let's make sounds, high and low. That sound is loud. That one's quiet. What can you hear? There are sounds all around. What's making each one? Name all the instruments in the band and be part of a 'body orchestra'. Pat your knees, clap your hands, tap your feet, let's move to the beat.
Wriggle and CrawlSpring 2
Wriggle and Crawl
Grab your coat and pooter - we're going out and about on a minibeast hunt. Sweep your nets in ponds and lift up logs to see who's home. Then set up a minibeast laboratory and observe their every move. Add notes and labels and ask research questions, just like a real entomologist. Learn about bees and worms and butterflies too. Can you make a food chain to show who eats who? Carry out investigations to find out more, like how far a snail travels in a day and how a spider catches its prey.
Scented GardenSummer 1
Tiptoe through the tulips as your senses discover the blooming foliage and enchanting fragrances of flowers and herbs. Round and round the mulberry bush we go, planting bulbs and seeds, and then watch them grow beneath sunshine and showers. Explore the astounding world of the scented garden, but be careful, there are some wild and dangerous plants out there that do astonishing things. Don't touch them. Everything is coming up roses. Why not grow your own?
This project teaches children about the physical and human features of coastal regions across the United Kingdom, including a detailed exploration of the coastal town of Whitby, in Yorkshire.
