‘A Stepping Stone into the Future’

Summer Term B

Week 3


This week began with a spider hunt and observing their finds using a view finder.  We then looked up some facts about spiders and the life cycle of the spider.  Nursery were fascinated to learn that baby spiders are caller 'spiderlings'!

We made some great spiders from collage with wiggly legs and googly eyes.

 World Music Day

Tuesday was ‘World Music Day’.  We made a music corner in our outdoor classroom.  The children explored the different sounds of the percussion instruments.  They kept a beat while playing along to the music and tried out the microphones.

Week 1 and 2

 Jack and the Beanstalk

Nursery have been planting beans and watching them grow outside.  We have been listening to different versions and re-telling the traditional tale ‘Jack and the Beanstalk’.  The children used puppets and prompts to act out the story.  They have created some great pictures with collage resources and explored the shaving foam to build castles in the clouds.
