Spring 2019 has officially commenced this week and we’re excited about it!
Spring is a joyful seasons as it is portrays new life. The trees are growing their leaves back, flowers are beginning to bloom and we start to see little lambs appearing in the fields. Not to the mention the fact that the nights stay lighter for longer meaning we have longer days of Spring to enjoy such as by going on evening walks.
Before Spring was called Spring, it was called Lent in Old English. Starting in the 14th century, that time of year was called “springing time”—a reference to plants “springing” from the ground. In the 15th century this got shortened to “spring-time,” and then further shortened in the 16th century to just “spring.”
Every year Spring begins in March, the date can vary but it is usually from the 19th - 21st March.
To celebrate the beginning of Spring as well as World Poetry Day, we have been learning about the Daffodils by Williams Worthsworth.
