Welcome to the new school year in the Nursery Monkey class.
My name is Ms Jane.
This term the children will be studying Minibeasts and we have already made a snail garden to keep in our classroom. The children have talked about what snails like to eat and have had the opportunity to feed them. We now have 4 snails but if you find any at home please send them in.
Today we planted flowering plants in our snail garden and the children have been watching them with interest.
We also had fun making snails out of playdough. We rolled the dough with our hands and then rolled them to look like snails with heads. Some of them were fat and some of them were thin.
Of course we have been taking part in a range of activities including cooking in the kitchen with our friends, building roads, drawing and painting, investigating insects and singing and dancing.
Next week on Monday it will be day three and we will go to the library for the first time and choose a book to bring home.
On Day 4 we will be having water play so don't forget to send in swimming suits and a towel.
