Tadpoles

The tadpoles have been showing an interest in playing with role play food items, we have been doing activities about food such as making our own food plates, making a stew, role playing shopping, and we are going on a trip to B&Q on the 14th April to buy some seeds for our garden. The children have been reading books about bugs and have been talking about ants they have seen in the garden and wiggly worms they have seen at forest, we are going to be doing bug hunts with magnifying glasses!How you can get involved

We have started to plant seeds and bulbs in our allotment now and we have been taking care of our garden area by watering and weeding the plants. You can get involved by getting your child to help you in the garden so they can watch the plants grow every day!

Frogs

Last month the children showed an interest in mini beasts. So this month we are doing lots of activities about mini beasts, such as going bug hunting with magnifying glasses and spades, and using natural resources to make our very own mini beast pictures. We have also been doing lots about Easter, we have been on an egg hunt in the garden, we have made Easter cards,  Easter bonnets and wore these for our end of term  dance performance on the 3rd of April.  We are very much looking forward to having the incubator soon to watch the chicks hatch from their eggs.

Butterflies

The butterflies have shown an interest in bears so we have been doing lot’s around the book ‘were going on a bear hunt’, we have been exploring all of the textures in the book as we have been reading it such as mud, twigs, water, and grass. We have been playing hide and seek with teddies and mark making with soil and water. You can get involved by taking your bears outdoors in the local area to explore the textures and take some photo’s to show your child’s friends.
