Bugs have been a big thing this week and the children have been hunting high and low for caterpillars, beetles, slugs, snails, ants, woodlice and anything else they can find.
They have been building habitats for bugs and nests for birds at the craft table using natural material and egg boxes, decorating ladybird pictures, and practising their scissor skills cutting caterpillar shapes in the busy fingers area.
Small world play indoors has been about different habitats for bugs too and looking at bugs from around the world.
We had a special delivery of our caterpillars on Monday. They were very tiny but are growing so very fast. This is giving the children the opportunity to see them grow and observe the stages of transformation into a butterfly.
