Spinning Cocoons!

This week we enjoyed sharing our learning and taking part in lots of activities with our Dads, Grandads and Uncles as part of our 'Dad's Day'. It was lovely to welcome so many of you into the setting and thank you for taking part with such enthusiasm and making the day so special for the children. Please see the gallery for photos.


The children are making careful observations as the caterpillars spin their cocoons. We have enjoyed creating caterpillars with a variety of resources and materials. The children have learnt a new 'wow' word which is symmetry. We have looked really closely at the colours and patterns on butterflies wings and have represented this new knowledge by designing our own patterns through colouring and colour mixing. In music and movement we created butterfly movements!



There has been some amazing building and role play in our construction areas this week. The children have used a variety of construction materials to create cars, buses, camp fires and farm yards! The children have further developed their play by adding props and engaging in some complex role play scenarios.




We have continued to develop our physical skills by taking part in an activity called 'Movement in a hoop'. The children showed great skills while hopping, jumping, skipping and creating 'freeze' movements in the different coloured hoops.
