This half term in the Swans class we are going to be learning about mini beasts.
This week we have been focussing on Ladybirds. We have looked at both information books and fiction books. The stories that we have read this week were ‘The Bad Tempered Ladybird’ by Eric Carle and ‘What the Ladybird Heard’ by Julia Donaldson who happens to one of our class authors.
The children have been busy writing about ladybirds, making ladybirds at the creation station and balancing golf ball ladybirds on golf tees at the funky fingers station.
During our maths we have been looking at doubling and halving and have used the ladybirds and their spots to help us.
During our weekly Forest Fun Friday session we were on the hunt for mini beasts. We all had a magnifying glass. We found lots of different mini beasts under the logs, on the leaves and around the area. Take a look at what we found.
During Forest school this week children were given half of a plastic egg and had to go and find their other matching half. Then children were encourage to use natural materials to make a nest for their egg.
This week the foundation stage held their Easter workshop. Parents were invited to join their children to make an Easter hat. Everyone gathered in the dinner hall, selected the resources they wanted to use from a large selection and then set about making their creations.
