Caterpillar to butterfly πŸ›πŸ¦‹ wk beginning 19/07/21

This week out caterpillars have changed quite a lot. We now have cocoons. The children are developing their understanding of life cycles and we have been looking at our new books that have been delivered. We have then discussed what comes first and sorting the life cycle sequence.

 

We have written some of the words that associated with our current interest.

Children have also started to explore the butterfly and we looked at the wings of the butterfly, one child noticed that β€œboth sides are the same”.

 

 

The courtyard Week beginning 14/06/21

  • After our racing experiences last week Β where children made their own signage the children had decided they would like to do lots more writing. One child came to nursery with a dragon on his T-shirt, this sparked some conversation and we decided to write our own stories about a dragon. Other children created their own stories, we have some very good imagination skills here at Oakburn.

The children have also been interest in a lemon smelling hand sanitiser, this sparked conversations about smells. We introduced some citrus fruits for the children to smell, however many children wanted to taste them, so we had a tasting session for the children to try some lemons, limes and oranges, we had some great describing words come out of our tasting sessions and some very funny reactions.
