Hi Nursery,

Activities for today are:

Literacy – Recap on the story of The Very Hungry Caterpillar. Then look on mini mash,click on the door to go outside, click on the ‘drawing and painting’ section, then ‘paint projects’ then ‘butterfly life cycle’. Talk about the life cycle as you colour in the pictures.

Topic work: You may like to make your own picture of the life cycle of a butterfly. Have a go at drawing a picture of an egg, a caterpillar, a cocoon and a butterfly. Look at the pictures in the story to help you. You could fold an A4 piece of paper in quarters, then unfold it and you have 4 sections – one for each picture. You could ask an adult to help you draw arrows between the pictures to show the life cycle, see if you can remember what comes first and the order of the life cycle.

Maths – Log on to mini mash and click on the pin icon, underneath the ‘minibeast’ pin there should be a pinned topic: ‘numbers’ appear. Click on ‘numbers’ and choose a game of pairs, you could start with 4 cards then go onto 8 cards. See how many numerals you can recognise as you play the game.

Have a great day!
