The Preschool room has had as very busy week preparing for their butterfly garden. The children showed high levels of in interest in books and stories around the outdoors and were keen to ask questions about the different mini beasts. The children used the touch and tilt table to research a range of different mini beasts including butterflies and learnt fun facts about each species.
To prepare for their butterfly garden the children loved filing their won plant pot with soil and sewing their seeds. The children incorporated counting skills when counting their seeds and were very excited to write their own name on their labels before putting into the garden growing space.
We will be extending this next week by speaking with our local integrated care home which the children visit weekly to begin to grow a variety of vegetable in our own vegetable patch. we look forward to sharing the developments of the vegetable with you :)
