Fly fly away…

Over the past few weeks, Froglets have had some visitors in the classroom. We have had some caterpillars to look after. We watched them carefully as they ate the food and grew bigger and bigger. Last week they crawled to the top of the pot and turned themselves into cocoons. 2 caterpillars hatched this week. The children called them Nemo and Sausage.

We let the butterflies go in the secret garden and they flew off to explore.

We have one caterpillar left that is yet to hatch so will have to wait and see what the Froglets will name them next week.

This week Froglets continued their learning about the circus!

We were very lucky to have a visit from Elfic the Juggler. He showed us how to juggle and rode his very tall unicycle around the playground. We had a lot of fun! After we had the chance to have a go at some circus skills for ourselves…

Adaline balanced on the tightrope!
Flynn enjoyed the seesaw balance!

We have also been doing some growing in Froglets. Last week the children planted some cress seeds and this week they got to see what had happened to them. They all knew they had to water the seeds to help them grow.
