Today we heard the story of a “Very Hungry Caterpillar”. What did he eat on Monday?, How many pears did he eat on Tuesday?. The very hungry caterpillar ate every day and then became a beautiful butterfly.
Now it´s time to draw our friend the Caterpillar. It was so fun to do it with balloons.
It´s such a beautiful day and Nursery 2 & 3 just could not resist a chance to get out in the sun.
Whether you are tapping, shaking, banging or blowing, musical instruments are a great way to get children engaged in music.
The children are exploring how sounds can be changed and learning how to copy a simple repeated rhythm.
Watch this space for some future professional musicians.

Would you go on a lion hunt?
They little lion hunters in Nursery 2 have been busy at work trying to see what they could find.
With their binoculars to hand, they went on a hunt around the school.
They found pictures of animals and even a lion cave.
It´s so much fun being an explorer!
Nursery 1 are all set for their ´Easter Egg Hunt´ this afternoon with the parents.
They have their hats and baskets at the ready.
Have you ever tried painting with feathers?
Children love everything about feathers from the colours to how they feel all soft and fluffy.
It´s nice to explore with the things in our environment and that´s exactly what they did. The children in Nursery 1 explored by using the feathers to paint with. By swirling and mixing the different types of paint, they were able to create different patterns and textures.
Painting strengthens fine motor skills and hand-eye coordination so open up a bag of feathers and have fun!
Nursery 1 have been getting creative with footprints this week; making patterns, exploring different colours and discovering the feeling of paint between their toes.
What a fun way to make a piece of art!
