This week at nursery

Hi Everyone!

What a heat there has been this week but it hasn’t stopped us from having FUN. We have started our new topic all about mini-beasts by looking at butterflies this week – their life cycle, their symmetry etc.  On Friday we went up to the woods and on the big field hunted for bugs – we didn’t find any caterpillar eggs but we did find lots of other creatures. But guess what arrived on Friday in class?!?! some tiny caterpillars with their own food that we are going to watch grow and hope that they all turn into beautiful butterflies – we’ll keep you posted!

In the heat we have had lots of fun with water outside – from pouring water into different containers, to using the water wall and we even had a few rain showers this week (courtesy of the water hose!). We did try to watch the video on line of the eclipse but there was  a lot of cloud.  We did see some images of the sun covered up by the moon!  Until the end of term we will be looking at classical music and this week as well as talking about an orchestra made up of lots of different instruments, we have listened to music such as  ‘Papillion’ by Schumann (see what we did there!). We moved our hands and even our bodies with the help of scarves for wings like butterflies!

Until next time, do good looking for adventures, clean your ears out for good listening and turn your noggins (brains) on for good learning.

Take care, stay safe and have a lovely half term!
