Spring time is when all the mini beasts either come out of their hibernation or start to create new life.
The theme was brought to life by a visit from Zoolab. Richard, the zoo keeper, showed the children a spider, snake, giant snail, beetle, iguana and a scorpion. The children were allowed to touch the snake, snail, beetle and iguana which they loved. Rosie the spider and the glow in the dark scorpion had to stay in their boxes!
A few of the children’s brother and sisters also came along to share the experience.
At craft time this week the children made some wonderful ladybirds, bees, snails and spiders that climbed up their spouts! This all brought the mini beast theme to life.
We also had a birthday celebration this week as well as having afternoon snack time outside as the summer is coming, or so we thought!
