As we continue our topic of Growing, we are looking at the life cycle of caterpillars and butterflies. We have been singing about a tiny caterpillar on a leaf and we enjoyed the story of the Hungry Caterpillar with the story sack toys outside. We have been painting and colouring caterpillars and our real caterpillars have now formed cocoons so we are very excited to see what will happen next!

Weekly update

Friday, June 14, 2019

Our caterpillars have grown so much already!

We have been making some lovely cards for Father’s Day and have been practicing writing our names inside. We talked about all the shapes we needed to make the pictures. Notice the ‘watch out for ducklings’ sign!

We have had lots of fun during our free play, even though it has rained a lot this week. Look at this amazing tower!

We are continuing our topic of Growing and have been looking at the life cycle of frogs. We have watched a video about how frogs grow and listened to songs about it. We have made frogspawn bubble pictures and collaged and painted some lovely frogs for our display. We also made some jelly, as frogspawn is very like jelly. Our jelly was strawberry flavour though, and we were very interested to see how the jelly cubes dissolved in hot water. We all enjoyed eating the jelly too!








This week’s learning

Nursery Fun!

We have lots of fun inside and out at nursery!





Friday, May 24, 2019

We have been having lots of fun in Nursery and have been very busy. We have planted our vegetable patch and we water it every day.










This week we have been working together to do a large puzzle of the world outside:

We have been listening to the story of Stickman and creating our own Stickman pictures from natural materials we found in the Nursery Garden.

We have also been growing sunflowers in pots. The children are bringing them home to plant in their own gardens. We would love to hear about how tall their sunflowers grow!

Have a lovely half-term. Show and Tell on the Monday we return is something beginning with the ‘P’ sound.
