Jelly Making

Ah! Amazing learning has continued in Early Years. We have been making jelly…which was nice and sweet! We added strawberries to it to make it healthier!!

I like Jelly!

We were open minded octopuses as we listened carefully and tried new stuff.

WOW, we have done some delightful doubling in maths this week. We used butterflies to create the wings and make the double! We then said the number sentence. Remember, when we double, the number gets BIGGER!

Adventurous Aardvarks

We have continued to be Adventurous Aardvark’s in the environment and have enjoyed exploring the outside collecting lots of different minibeasts whilst being Respectful Rabbits! We have been learning the story, ‘The Very Hungry Caterpillar!’ We retold it BEAUTIFULLY!! We have also begun to innovate (change) the story! It is now…drum roll….The…Very…Hungry…TADPOLE!!!!!!

Our topic this term is - Where does it come from?

What do plants need to grow? Where in the world do different animals come from? The children will dive head first into finding out about lots of different plants and animals in the natural world; be it a real life experience of finding mini-beasts in the outside area or finding out about different plants and habitats across the world.

As we begin to create and think critically, children will explore the natural world around them and begin to link their knowledge, skills and understanding together.

Mini Beasts Day

WOW! We have had a fantastic day of being mini beasts! Look at our fantastic mini beast costumes and we thank the lovely parents for their efforts. We were butterflies, caterpillars and ladybirds! Mr Mc was a Caterpillar and Miss PM was a ladybird!

This term we are learning about mini beasts and our book is, The Very Hungry Caterpillar!
