Hello and welcome to Nursery
Happy last day everyone!
Children in nursery learn through exciting and engaging activities, which are planned to motivate and inspire young learners through their own interests and enjoyments.
We believe children learn quickly and animatedly when they are able to follow their own joys and passions. We encourage our children to be independent learners and to believe in themselves and each other.

Play dough Recipe:
Play dough is used to develop your child's fine motor skill. This will support their growing control when using mark making tools correctly in a fun and exciting way. You can use everyday kitchen equipment to create patterns, cutter and rollers. Here is a recipe to create your own play dough at home;
- 2 cups plain flour
- 2 tablespoons vegetable oil (baby oil and coconut oil work too)
- 1/2 cup salt.
- 2 tablespoons cream of tartar.
- 1.5 cups boiling water (adding more if needed)
- gel food colouring
- You can add a few drops of essences (orange, vanilla, lavender, ginger etc) for extra fun.
This can be stored in an air tight container in the fridge. We combine the dry ingredients first and then liquids before mixing altogether.

Even if we are not in nursery all together we can still share the life of our caterpillars.
Each day we can observe how much they grow.
Day 1 18.4.20 They are smaller then a grain of rice.
Our caterpillars have had a big growth and one has crawled to the top. They like to find somewhere high and safe to turn into a cocoon.
Day 11 - can you spy the small black patch above the caterpillar? This is old skin as they grows bigger they will shed its old skin and emerge with its new body.
Day 12 - Our caterpillars are growing fast. They are becoming more hairy and making fine webs around themselves. They are still munching lots too.
Day 13 - our very big caterpillars.

· A Caterpillar is born with six eyes, a mouth, six functional legs on its thorax a (portion of the body between the head and the abdomen) and four pairs of prolegs that are not jointed but serve as balance points for the body.
· A Caterpillar spends its life eating; as it grows bigger it will shed its old skin and emerge with its new body.
· To keep itself attached to leaves, a caterpillar will spin a silk thread.
· After two weeks of being a caterpillar, it then attaches itself with silk and hangs upside down on a leaf.
· After twenty-four hours the caterpillar’s skin will split exposing the pupa.
Day 16 - all caterpillar have moved to the top, maybe they are finally ready to turn into cocoons.

Spring is here, talk to your child about what changes can they see happening in the world around us.
Allow your child time to discuss and identify any 'spring time' animals or plants.
We have been busy bird watching in our nursery garden. You could make your own pair of binoculars to look out of your window and identify any birds.

Singing, dancing and movement can not only keep us happy and healthy but help to improve our gross motor movements which helps our fine motor movements.
Eat an apple, plant a seed
A little seed for you to sow,
A little soil to make me grow,
A little hole, a little pat,
A little wish and that is that,
A little sun, a little shower,
A little while -
And then, watch me grow
Watch your seed grow, help your child to measure and share a photo with us!
Lets fill our Nursery Garden with trees.

· After the cocoon is exposed to air for about an hour it hardens.
· It is bronze in colour and hangs with no movement for one week.
· Inside the cocoon the caterpillar is changing its body into a butterfly; this process is called metamorphosis.
Painted Lady Butterfly:
· After the cocoon hangs for one week, it splits open and a butterfly emerges.
· The butterfly will hang on the leaf for about an hour while its wings straighten out.
· A butterfly has a head, thorax, abdomen and four wings. It also has six legs, however, only four of them are actually are used.
· The butterfly also has two eyes made up of 10,000 lenses.
