In the butterfly room we have been learning about spring and flowers growing. We have been going local walks to look at the flowers that are starting to blossom. We have had flowers in our room to look at then paint, in our water tray and used for gluing. We have practiced a variety of art activities to creat flowers such as painting our hands, using leaves, twigs and flowers to paint exploring different textures whilst developing our fine motor skills. As the weather is brightening up we have been spending more time outdoors in the garden and on walks to local parks. We were lol soon be needing sun hats and suncream as the weather gets warmer!

The children have show interest in music, sounds and dancing so we have been doing activities to extend this interest. Developing our social skills whilst dancing together and making music with the instruments and actions to songs. Our favourite so far has been ‘ring a Roses’ and ‘sleeping bunnies’.

Our home corner has been moved around to creat more space for the children to be able to move freely around the furniture. The change has sparked more interest in the area and we have been doing different activities such as feeding and caring for the dollies, making food and having real food such as dried and cooked pasta, pulses and fruit and vegetables.

There has been some changes within our room with children transitioning into the room from Caterpillars and onto the Ladybird room too. We have also had two new children starting nursery in our room and we are pleased everyone is settling well into their new rooms. To get to know the children and their interests we have been focusing on small groups activities, building bonds and getting to know the routine.
