Pre school have been very busy little explorers the past few weeks. They have been exploring mini beasts and learning lots about ladybirds in particular, and also looking for signs of spring in lots of creative and exciting ways.
Photography: Pre School have been out and about using the Ipads to take photographs of the signs of spring while they explore our beautiful grounds. They have spotted daffodils blooming, the magnificent magnolia flowers, colourful camellias, dainty daisies and lots, lots more. Have a look at their wonderful photos below! The children also spotted squirrels playing in the sunshine, and listened to bird song as they walked through the woods.We have challenged Pre School to see if they can get a sound recording of the woodpecker who is living in our trees too!
Minibeast Investigation: The children have been taking out magnifying glasses to look really closely for mini beasts as well as flowers and buds. We are very impressed with their photography skills in particular! They have also been practicing recording what they’ve found using pencils and clipboards too. The children have spotted woodlouse, ants, bees, worms to name a few!
Counting: There has also been so much counting happening in Pre School, they have been counting in lots of different ways:
What a lot of counting and comparisons. Well done everyone! There has been lots of discussion about ‘more’ ‘lots’ and ‘less’ too. Some children are starting to recognise numerals and match quantity to numerals too. Super maths pre school!
We can’t wait to hear what you learn about minibeasts and spring next!
