The children have been thinking about the boundaries of the setting. We conducted an experiment to find out what would happen if we spilled our milk on the carpet. We soaked a piece of cloth with fresh milk and left it for a few days. When we checked the cloth we realised how disgusting milk is when it goes sour. We agreed that we should only drink our milk at the snack table rather than carrying it around the Nursery with us.
We decided to build our own climbing frame. We thought about where we needed to position the A frames and benches and noticed that if we pulled them apart we could make the journey across the frame more challenging. We thought of different ways to move along the apparatus and a variety of ways to get around obstacles. Some of us then mapped out our design and used our mark-making to explain what we had done.
Outside we started up our own pizza delivery business, taking orders then making and delivering pizzas. We thought about the flavours and sizes we prefer and practiced our cutting and sticking skills.
One of our parents brought in their new baby so we could measure and compare size. The children brought in baby pictures from home to talk about and share with each other.
We were able to watch the transformation of our caterpillars into butterflies and the children made an information book about the process along with their own version of the very hungry Caterpillar.
