Allot of fun!

This week the reception children have been visiting our fabulous Hill Mead allotment. With Autumn in full swing we have been finding ripening pumpkins, apples, sweetcorn, herbs and vegetables to pick. 

The children have made natural crowns and have been hunting mini beasts from frogs and snails to spiders and beetles.

Our Class Snails

We are all so interested in the outside world in the EYFS.
We have a glass tank in class, in which the children are putting snails they have found. 
There is so much to talk about, especially when the snails decide to have a race!

Our Portrait Project

There is a lot of excitement about the special things that children have brought into the EYFS. 
They have been talking about why these things are special, and are very interested in each other's.
We have taken a photo of each child with their special thing, and the children will be creating their own portraits soon.

The Very Hungry Caterpillar.. As told by Afia

"A little egg layed on the leaf and one sunny morning, out the egg popped a little tiny very hungry caterpillar and then he started looking for some food. (Afia goes and gets the book). On Monday he ate one apple. On Tuesday he ate through two pears. On Wednesday he ate through three plums. On Thursday he ate through four strawberries. On Friday he ate through 1,2,3,4,5 5 oranges. On Saturday he ate one lolly one cherry cake on sausage one cupcake and one big slice of cake. That might he had a stomach ache. On Sunday he ate through one leaf and felt much better. He wasn't a little caterpillar anymore. He is a big fat caterpillar. He made a cocoon and pushed himself in so he can sleep inside and he stayed in there for more that two weeks and then he on Monday again he turned into a beautiful butterfly. The end".

The Life Cycle of a Butterfly

"The caterpillar is long and here's a apple and here's a a orange and a strawberry, he's got to eat cos he's so hungry like the story we read" (I wonder what will happen when he has eaten all the food...) "He not a hungry caterpillar anymore and not a tiny caterpillar anymore cos he's eaten all the food". "Miss now I I do a cocoon, cos he can live and be warm and then he turn to a big beautiful butterfly, I can do a butterfly too you know. The hungry caterpillar has a baby I think so he comes in the egg.. I think so the egg fall down in the tree in the bushes. I make a tiny egg, little, little egg, crack out I think it going to be a baby caterpillar".
