Welcome back! We hope you all had an enjoyable half term. This week we have been learning about the life cycle of a butterfly through the story of 'The Very Hungry Caterpillar'. We have eagerly been awaiting the arrival of our own caterpillars which arrived safely today. Mrs Goodwin helped the children to put the caterpillars into their own individual habitats. The children will be able to observe the caterpillars as they grow and prepare to spin their cocoons before turning into beautiful butterflies!
Over the week we have enjoyed the story through different formats, created caterpillars using different materials, made butterfly prints and baked butterfly cakes! The display boards in nursery are looking very colourful with all the amazing art work the children have created.
Next week we will be learning about and tasting the fruits from the story. We will also be thinking about healthy foods and lifestyle and our five senses.
