We have been looking for signs of Spring this week - believe it or not we did find some! On our walk we found blossom, flowers, nests, bees and birds. We made collages using the things we collected.
We also painted blossom pictures and some children spent hours adding lots of detail with tissue paper and other resources - the pictures were beautiful!!!
We also learnt what seeds need to grow and we planted our own bean seed - we will watch it change and grow over the next few weeks.
We also returned the tadpoles to the pond - we decided they would be happier there in their natural home and they would grow healthier and stronger.
Our core story this week has been 'Monkey Puzzle' - butterfly helps baby monkey find his mum, but butterfly keeps getting muddled up because she doesn't know monkey's mum will look like him because her baby caterpillars don't look like her! This has got us thinking about other animals that are different to their parents at birth, for example, frogs. We enjoyed visiting the school pond to see tadpoles and we collected many to have a good look at them back in class. Some of our creative work has involved printing to make caterpillars, but best of all are the books children have made independently.
We have found that many animals do look similar to their parents when they are small and we have enjoyed playing with mum and baby animals in the small world area.
