Nursery explore minibeasts and under the sea

The Nursery children were deeply involved in their minibeast project last half term. They explored where minibeasts lived and what they looked like, sorted them into sets and counted them; they even observed them and watched caterpillars turn into their chrysalis and then hatch into butterflies! Nursery made models and learned through a song that insects have six legs, a head, thorax, and abdomen. The children showed great determination in learning about new minibeasts and carried this through when they built models of them. 

This half term, Nursery are switching their focus to creatures under the sea. So far in STEAM (Science, Technology, Engineering, Art and Maths), the children have sorted out animals into sets: those that live on land and those that live in the sea. They have looked at how sea creatures move and breathe and have discussed how that is different to land creatures. Our Nursery looked like an aquarium full of fish when all the children showed how open-minded they were about using their bodies to sway like a fish and move their hands like fins. Nursery have also been practising their fine motor skills by drawing creatures that live in the sea. 

The Nursery children are also looking forward to welcoming some of their parents into the nursery, over the next few weeks. They have signed up to talk about their underwater adventures, share their favourite sea story or share some amazing sea creature facts with us.
