Week 4

This week, we continued our learning of the caterpillar life cycle. We had a lot of fun learning about the chrysallis stage (cocoon). Some of our brave children were happy for the adults to wrap them up, like a cocoon, to then break free. This represents the stage before the butterfly emerges. 


In forest school, we used natural objects to create a symmetrical butterfly picture. The children observed which objects looked the same to create their butterfly. For example noticing two similar leaves. 


We have been making the most of being outside more at Pre-school and using our large playground to perfect our bike riding skills. 


Our new caterpillars have been growing and we are enjoying observing them each day. Our growing topic has been lots of fun this half term!
