This week in the discovery area we have shown a great interest in Sea life creatures! GH came into nursery on Monday morning and was sharing with her friends that at the weekend she had been at Deep Sea World where she had seen lots of sharks and fish! She brought a few small sea creatures in to show us. We put them in a tuff tray to explore them further.
The boys and girls agreed together that the sea animals needed blue sea, sand and shells so we added this to our small world along with some stories.
While exploring some of the children took interest in the shape and patterns on the shells so we set up some paint and paper to explore these patterns further.
Later in the week CM asked me “how many legs does a squid have?” So we printed some pictures of different sea creatures and counted how many legs, tentacles and fins they had.
