Term 5 was as busy as ever for our Caterpillars. We embraced our Nature Detectives topic and became experts at searching for and finding bugs. 

We used our naturally curious natures to explore all aspects of our school environment. We spent time in our garden, on the main school field and at forest school carefully searching for new and interesting creatures.

In the classroom, we were fascinated by the Caterpillars we watched grow and change into cacoons then beautiful butterflies. It was just like in the story The Very Hungry Caterpillar. We were so excited when we got to hold the butterflies before they were released. Some of our friends were a little unsure as their feet and wings tickled us, but others of us were mesmerised by the feeling. 

We used our magnifying glasses to search for bugs both real and pretend, then helped our friends ticked them off on their bug hunt lists.

We continued our weekly visits from children in Foxes class. We shared stories together and they told us about their favourite books from when they were 2. We really enjoy this and look forward to each of their visits. We hope they  continue to visit during the current term.

Some of us took our bug hunting skills up to the forest school site with support from Mhairi. We found lots of interesting little creatures, but may also have got a little distracted by the fun the mud offered whilst there.

The Caterpillars were really excited to be invited to take part in the Great British Spring Clean challenge with the schools eco leaders. We proudly donned our high vis vests and navigated the litter pickers to help the older children clean up the school field.  

This term Caterpillars topic is World Explorers. We will be sharing lots of stories to help us discover new things about the world around us.

We look forward to some special visitors from a local petting farm, who share our adventures in the forest school area.

We hope the sun shines this term and provides us with a lovely ending to the school year. With that said please support us in helping to keep your children safe from the sun whilst at school by applying suncream everyday. Even on the cloudy days the UV rays will be causing damage to your child's skin. Please also provide a water bottle and sun hat and then we will work hard to ensure they wear it. Thank you for your support with this.


Let's enjoy a lovely term 6 together!
