This week the preschool concluded their lifecycles and growth curriculum topic with their own three part workshop exploring different mini beasts.
Workshop station one consisted of the children observing their worm world wormery and the worms using the magnify glasses, they then extended to real life drawings of the worms.
Workshop station two focused on the life cycle of the butterfly. The children observed their caterpillars as part of their chrysalis experience. The children loved describing the caterpillars and commenting with their peers on what the caterpillars were doing.
