In the first half term we will be exploring things that we might find in our gardens. We will look at plants and their structures as well as varieties of plants and what they need to grow.

We also explore plant poetry and write instructions and explanation texts. This term our Year 2 children will also be completing their Spy Academy work, which they are excited about.
