Going ‘bug crazy’ at Children 1st @ Oakwood!
The children in the Early years at Oakwood nursery have gone bug crazy this week from our delivery of real caterpillars!
The children were instantly intrigued to this very hairy creepy crawly, observing them growing bigger and bigger each day as they eat all the food provided in the pots.
This ties in with the world famous book ‘The Very Hungry Caterpillar’ which is the book of the month. The children enjoyed listening to how the caterpillar turned into a beautiful butterfly and cant wait to see if their caterpillars will also transform.
Using the story, the children explored the different fruits by drawing observational pictures and using their senses to explore the different smalls and textures.
