Our topic for this term is food. We have been looking at the different food groups and what foods are classes as healthy. This week we used those healthy foods to paint pictures! We explored the different shapes and textures we could create using various vegetables.
This week in the nursery we have been very excited to see our caterpillars turn into cocoons hopefully by next week we will have some butterflies. The Monday/Tuesday children helped to prepare some sugar water for the butterflies to eat once hatched.
Both groups have been learning about symmetry. We have been looking at how butterflies and ladybirds are ‘the same’ on both side there for they are symmetrical.
Both groups have also been looking at the story the very hungry caterpillar seeing if we are able to retell the story in our own way, during this time we also created glueing’s of the life cycle of the butterfly.
