This week in nursery

Hi Everyone!

This week we have been learning about spiders!! We have read ‘The Very Busy Spider’ together and practised our actions for retelling the story together – what great memories we all have! At the creation station we have been very busy!! We have made spider webs out of glue and glitter and we have started to make spiders out of Paper Mache and we have been colouring in spiders along with writing our names on them and adding them to the spider web. Outside we have also been rescuing insects trapped in a giant spiders web! In math we have been looking at patterns – in animals, on insects and even our socks!

In the sunshine and in the rain we have been catching and looking at insects – lots of slugs, snails, ants and wood lice ( or ‘slaters’ as Mrs Bain calls  a wood louse- do you call them something different?!).  The water wall and water tray has equally been as popular in the sunshine and in the rain. In the sandpit we have been digging and searching for letters hidden in the sand – we found letters we recognise from our names!

We have been looking at, measuring and describing our caterpillars each day and compiling a diary together as a class. You can see them changing in the pictures – they are now starting to change into cocoons. We can’t wait to see what colour butterflies they are.

We have a bit of optional homework for you over the weekend – next week we are making a wormery in class. If you are busy digging outside and happen to find some worms – pop them in a container – (with air holes and a bit of soil!) and bring them in on Monday so that we can add them to our wormery  – how exciting!

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  see you soon!
