Book of the month…. The Very Hungry Caterpillar.

This month the nursery have been busy reading The Hungry Caterpillar. Following on from the book the children have been drawing their own caterpillars, tasting some of the fruit and making their own caterpillars.

Area of learning….Maths

Across the nursery the children have been focusing on maths this month. They have been cooking using scales, singing maths songs, creating nature number lines and counting building blocks and bears, take a look!
