Term 5, Week 5

This week Apples and Pears have shown a real interest in mini-beasts, where they live and their similarities and differences. We went on a nature hunt and found resources to build a large bug hotel in our outside area. The children have shown team work and resilience and have been really curious about what was needed and how we could make a home for the mini-beasts. The children have been bug hunting all week and used the magnifying glasses and bug pot to carefully identify and make observations. The children were really caring and understood how to move them safely to our bug hotel.

In Maths we have looked at odd and even numbers. The children explored odd and even numbers, looking at patterns in the digits.  They explored higher numbers and understood that they could identify if a smaller number is odd or even by sharing it fairly.

Next week, we have an exciting day planned on Thursday 25th May. We will be having a mini-beasts party to open our new bug hotel. Please can your child come dressed up as their favourite mini-beasts. This can be a whole costume or wings with own clothes or some face paint.

Thank you for all your support.

Have a lovely weekend,

The EYFS team.
