The children have been so interested in the different minibeasts we have talked about that we have decide to do just a little bit more.
This week we have been looking at the story 'The Very Lazy Ladybird'
The children have enjoyed listening to the story and have begun joining in with the bits that they remember.
Ask them to show you the different actions for the different animals.
It has also lead us into talking about what we can do now that we couldn't do as a baby and what we may not be able to do yet but will be able to do in the future.
We were lucky enough to find a real Ladybird in our outside area and talked about the different features and colours.
Here are some of the lovely Ladybirds we have made with Mrs Laver.
The Sun Is Shining!
The sun has begun to shine and we are spending more and more time outside in our Elmer's playground. There are lots and lots of changes that we have been looking at and lots of new things that we can see.
Last week we talked about the Celebration of Easter. We made cards, did crafts and even had a visit from the Easter bunny! The children were very excited when we found the footprints leading up into forest school and although we didn't see the bunny himself, we had great fun searching for the eggs he had left for us and counting them.
Thank you for all your support in collecting sponsorship money for our class charity Blue Bell Wood. The children all completed the challenge and some even chose to play on the obstacle course during their free play time. If you haven't managed to collect your sponsor money yet, please could we have it as soon as possible so that we can hand it all over together.
This week we have started our new theme - It's a Bugs Life. We will be learning all about different minibeasts and where they live.
We have started with our book of the week Superworm which some of the children were already very familiar with. There is a lovely version of the story on the cbeebies website read by James McAvoy please follow this link to watch it with your children.
Please encourage your children to look around your garden or take them to a park and see is you can find any interesting bugs to share with us at show and tell time. Don't forget to take a picture of them so that we can see what they look like.
