The Mount Stewart Schools

Week 7

This week, children in the nursery have been doing lots of exciting activities. They have been very busy preparing for their Learning assembly. The children were excited to show their parents about what they had been learning and also what they will continue to learn this term.

The children created 3-D minibeasts using paper mache. They have all worked very hard to make their favourite mini beast and talk about the different things it can do.

 Through out the week the children read the book called, The Very Hungry Caterpillar By Eric Karl . We talked about the life cycle of a butterfly and we are watching the whole process happening in our class. The children have been observing how our caterpillar has turned into a cocoon just as it did in the story. They are fascinated by this process and they are constantly discussing it in class.
