A Bug's Life
The Summer Term in our reception class is a creepy crawly affair as we learn all about BUGS!
We begin our topic by learning all about caterpillars and butterflies. We love the story of THE VERY HUNGRY CATERPILLAR and enjoy learning about the life cycle of a butterfly first hand as we watch our very own caterpillars transform in our butterfly farm!
This topic has a very scientific focus as we go on to find out all about, identify and learn some of the features of a range of insects including ladybirds, bees and even spiders. Yuk!
We especially enjoy using the environmental area to find real insects and look at them in close detail using our digital microscope! They look really huge on the interactive whiteboard!
