Week beginning 26th April
This week we have been exploring how our caterpillars will change as they become butterflies. We have read the stories 'The Hungry Caterpillar' and 'The Cautious Caterpillar' and we have thought about whether we prefer to walk or have wings and fly. We have checked our caterpillars every day and they are now getting quite big. We have also been exploring how our eggs will be changing inside and we are counting down until our eggs hatch.
In phonics this week we have learnt the sounds 't' and 'p'. we have listened to the sound in words and learnt songs with the sounds in them. As part of our Maths learning we have been exploring patterns.
Week beginning 19th April
We have had a wonderful and exciting start to the new term.
In Nursery this term we will be learning about Spring and Growth. This week in Nursery we have received some caterpillars to look after and we are keeping them safe until they hatch into butterflies. We have also received some chicken eggs and an incubator. We are going to look after the eggs until they hatch. We are counting down on our chart and we expect them to hatch in approximately 20 days. We have also cracked an egg and talked about the contents inside.
This week we have also learnt the phonemes 's' and 'a' in our phonics learning. We have practised saying the phoneme, recognising the grapheme and sorted items that begin with those sounds.
In our other learning we have enjoyed playing in our Garden Centre and pricking out our seedlings into larger pots.
We are looking forward to more excitement next week!
