This week has been filled with excitement as we began our new topic of mini beasts. 
From watching our tiny caterpillars to going on a mini beast hunt, our preschoolers have been thoroughly engaged in exploring the fascinating world of insects. Here's a look at our week:

We started with story time, reading "The Very Hungry Caterpillar" and practicing our days of the week using the story.
The children were captivated by the tale and have enjoyed watching their own tiny caterpillars, hoping they will grow into beautiful butterflies just like in the story.
Using sponges and paint, we have made our own caterpillars using our knowledge of repeating patterns. It was a fun and creative way to connect with the story.
We also sang a delightful rhyme about a tiny caterpillar on a leaf, which added to the excitement of our mini beast theme.

Our outdoor mini beast hunt was a huge success! We discovered bees, worms, wood lice, spiders, ladybirds, and ants, sparking curiosity and wonder in our young explorers.

During circle time, we used our good listening and talking rules to share stories about what we did over the holidays. It was a wonderful opportunity for the children to practice their communication skills and connect with each other. This week in Heartsmart, we focused on perseverance with a fun activity of matching up nuts and bolts. Boris says "keep trying you can do it".

We had a wonderful music session where the children tapped out the rhythms in 'Tanka Tanka Skunk' and then took turns using the drum to tap out rhytmms for thier friends to copy.

Playing on the trim trail helped us exercise our gross motor skills, enhancing balance, coordination, and strength. We also worked on our fine motor skills through threading and colourful peg activities, which are essential for hand-eye coordination and dexterity.

We had a special visitor, Mrs. Ward, who visited us in preschool. The children had a lovely time playing and talking with her, easing the transition to the next stage of their educational journey. We also took a sneaky walk around the reception classroom while the older children were out on a walk. It was exciting to see all the things that are the same as in preschool, making the transition less daunting.

Next week, we will continue to observe our caterpillars as they grow and we will be welcoming more 'mini' beasts into our classroom.
