Insects and Creatures

We have enjoyed learning all about insects and creatures, both around us and in the wider world, this week. We have researched using books as well as finding information online.
We hunted outside, looking for creatures in our EYFS outdoor area. We found lots of worms, ants, and woodlice!

We have been creating our own creature artwork at our crafts table, as well as more fantastic creations that you will see on our EYFS corridor display!

Thank you for visiting, we hope to see you again soon!

Creating, playing, and exploring

 This week we have been making marks on whiteboards of numbers. Amalia did a beautiful number 2!
Sain created a brilliant house, using simple materials together to show his vision. He made a house using a box for the walls and paper for the roof, decorating it all himself

 We have been playing and exploring outside, now that the warm weather is beginning to set in!
Shona played beautifully in the water, using her senses to explore pouring and splashing.

We have had a lovely time this week, playing and learning together, and can't wait for next week!

A brilliant week of learning

 We have been having lots of fun this week, exploring our environment using our senses and playing kindly together.
 Samuel buried his hand! He used good control of a spade to dig himself in deep!

 Evie and Nyla did some great drawing together, talking about what they should add to their drawings to make them even better.
 Archie and Evie worked together on the white board, making marks and talking about what to do next.

We had a great time dancing and singing in the hall, playing musical statues and practicing our gross motor skills.

We have also been creating our own worms to go with this week's story 'I can only draw worms' by Will Mabbitt. 

Finally, congratulations to Milo and Shona-Mae for being our special mentions this week!

We used our fine motor skills to collect insects.

We have been dressing up and roleplaying in various ways, as 'People Who Help Us'
