We have been loving our ‘Glorious Growing’ topic. We had a very special delivery of some tiny caterpillars and have been keeping an eye on these as they change. We have been learning the story ‘The Very Hungry Caterpillar’ and used this to help us think about the changes that happen in the butterfly lifecycle. We made our own caterpillar life cycles using pasta to represent the different stages.
We also read the story ‘Jasper’s Beanstalk’ and used these to help us think about how we can look after plants and help seeds grow. We sorted different items into those that help us and those that would help seeds. We then used these items to grow some cress heads.
For World Book Day we enjoyed a Beatrix Potter themed day. We made Chamomile tea, went fishing with Jeremy Fisher and washed clothes with Mrs Tiggy Winkle. The children’s costumes were amazing and we had a fantastic day.
