Nature and Changes

This half term in Nursery we have been exploring how the seasons are beginning to change and how things are growing. We loved looking after our own tiny caterpillars, watching them grow and eventually turn into beautiful butterflies. Seeing the life-cycle process in real life after reading ‘The Very Hungry Caterpillar’ was lots of fun!

We will be drawing, painting and describing animals, as well as using recycled materials to make animals.

In Phonics we will be developing our listening skills and playing lots of listening games and singing rhyming songs.

In our Number Time we will be learning all about numbers to 5, as well as learning about different number rhymes such as 5 little ducks.
