The Very Hungry Caterpillar(s!)

This week in Nursery we have continued with our learning around lifecycles. On Wednesday we received a special delivery of 35 caterpillars which we will observe and care for until they turn into 'beautiful' butterflies!


To support our learning around the lifecycle of a butterfly we have been focussing on the story of The Very Hungry Caterpillar. As well as listening to the story and developing an understanding of lifecylces we have been developing our fine motor skills by creating concertina and finger print caterpillars. We have been working on our number recognition by creating caterpillars with numbered pebbles and counting each section of the caterpillars body. There has been lots of crawling, creeping and wriggling on the 'Very Hungry Caterpillar' obstacle course! 


On Wednesday our day focussed on mark making as we invited parents into the setting to join us for our 'Mark Making Workshop'. The session began with presentations by Mrs Magan and Ms Kingman and then the parents and children both explored a variety of resources and activities that supported not just mark making but the development of muscles and physical movements. The session was rounded off by a brilliant dough disco performance by the Reception children and then a presentation of goody bags to each family! Please see the gallery for photos.

We celebrated the arrival of sunshine on Thursday by walking down to the field to have a picnic snack and then bubble play. The children had so much fun running on the grass and blowing and catching the bubbles!
