What the Ladybird Heard!

Published on Friday 23 June 2017 by Miss Fox.

This week we loved reading 'What the Ladybird Heard.' After the story we worked together in our groups to go on a treasure hunt. We had to find the ladybird that was hiding in the nursery garden. There were lots of hidden clues to help us which told us where we had to look. The children were great at following instructions and understood positional language when they looked under, on top, behind, in front and next to. We had so much fun and were very excited when we finally found the ladybird!

The children have been waiting very patiently for our caterpillars to build their cocoons. It won't be long now, as the caterpillars have eaten lots of food and have grown very big and fat. We have enjoyed finding caterpillars in the garden, so we could look at them in more detail. Niamh described the caterpillar she found as “soft and prickly.” The children have also been very creative and have loved painting caterpillars and ladybirds. Ethan painted a beautiful picture showing the life cycle of a butterfly.

We would like to say a huge thank you for attending our father's day event. It was lovely to see so many dads, grandads and family members! Unfortunately due to the weather the events on the morning were cancelled, but we were lucky enough to head out in the sunshine on the afternoon. We hope you all had a lovely time and enjoyed your hot dogs!

We would also like to remind you that our summer 'C Festival” is coming up on Friday 7th July. We would be very grateful if you contribute any unwanted gifts to be used as tombola and raffle prizes. Please could you hand your donations to your child's key worker as soon as possible. Thank you very much!

Our little rays of sunshine this week are Sam Moss for really impressing me with his number skills. He was able to independently order the numbers from 0-10 when I muddled them up. What brilliant number work Sam! Abi-Jane for her amazing number recognition and adding skills. Matthew Harrison for showing great care and concern in looking after the caterpillars which he found in the nursery garden. Mia Gibson as she thoroughly enjoyed going on our ladybird hunt and was so engaged whilst looking for “the signs” and finally Fiona Norman for trying very hard to write her name. She is a delight to have in our group and always tries her best at any task. Fantastic work everybody!
