The babies have been very busy we have focused on vegetables and how they grow we have made our own little vegetable patch indoors and explored the allotment outdoors. Other than this we have done lots of messy play and visited pets at home.

We have just set up our new egg incubator to hatch our very own chicks. They will take 21 days to hatch and hopefully we will have our very own Abbeywood Tots chicks. The children have already thought of lots of names for when they arrive and we will be looking at life cycles across the nursery of Eggs to chickens and Caterpillars to butterflies.

The tadpoles have been exploring different textures. They have felt different fabrics and squashed around in a paddling pool of baked beans to explore all sorts of textures.

We have also had world book day which we all dressed up as our favourite book character and played out scenes of our favourite books!

We will be focusing on SPRING next!!


The frogs have been focusing on the start of Spring. We have been experimenting with Eggs.

We have wrapped eggs in different materials and rolled them down a slope to see how well they were protected.

We did lots of other experiments including seeing whether eggs are cooked or raw by seeing if they spin.
