During our lifecycle topic we watched caterpillars change into butterflies. Then we release them on a lovely sunny day in the playground. It was lovely to see them flutter away – some of them even landed on the children!
Butterflies have been busy learning about lifecycles!
We are waiting for our caterpillars to turn into beautiful butterflies and we have planted beans which we are looking after in the classroom. Who’s bean will be the tallest?
We have found out about the life cycle of a chicken and we currently have some very cute chicks in our classroom.
Butterflies class have created some excellent life cycle books and posters during these last two weeks.
Butterflies finally planted an apple tree which was donated by the local Morrisons store!
During our Superhero topic, we have been looking at real life heroes. This week we had a visit from the police. First they spoke to all the children about the 5 steps to crossing the road safely. Can your child remember them?
- HOLD your grown up’s hand.
- STOP at the roadside
- LOOK left and right.
- WALK across the road looking both ways.
We did hand printing in traffic light colours to remember to hold a grown up’s hand.
P.C. Brad and P.C. Lucas spoke at the Butterflies about being a police officer. Their job is to keep people safe. They showed the children all the special equipment they carry on their jackets including a torch, a camera, handcuffs and a truncheon!
We also had a look at the police van outside. The policemen turned on the blue flashing lights and the really noisy siren!
Then we had a look inside.
The rain didn’t dampen our fun – we had a great afternoon.
Some of the children had great fun in the mud! They were making ‘mud cakes’ and jumping in muddy puddles.
…and the classroom got a little sticky too!
