This term we continued with our topic 'Changes are happening everywhere'. We looked at lifecycles of plants, looking closely at the lifecycle of the Sunflower. We took great delight in planting our sunflower seeds and have cared for them over the past few weeks, sheltering them from the torrential downpours and blustery winds. Having survived the weather and caring for them gently, we have all managed to grow a least one sunflower if not three in our little pots. They have now left the care of the classroom and have been sent home to plant out and hopefully everyone will get to see them flower over the summer holidays.
The other lifecycle we looked at this term was the lifecycle of a butterfly. We took delivery of 5 very tiny caterpillars in the first week of term and have watched them closely monitoring any changes that were happening to them. We recorded our observations in our very own Caterpillar Diary. Any changes of course caused great excitement in the classroom!
We successfully hatched and released 3 beautiful 'Painted Lady' butterflies.
Of course one of the highlights of this term is Sports Day and the lead up to it, is just as exciting as the day itself. We loved practising all the races in the weeks leading up to it.
Once again we find ourselves at the end of another academic year.
Thank you to all the Big and Little Parrots of the academic year 2022-2023. It has been a pleasure and lots of fun teaching you and I wish you all the best for your next year in school. Keep working hard - I know you can do it! Have a safe and fun summer holidays and I look forward to seeing you all next year as either Monkeys or Big Parrots!
