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.
