Our butterflies are here! We have really enjoyed watching the process from caterpillar to butterfly. Now they need to have some food before they are set free. We have put some sugared leaves and oranges in the net for them.

Our French word of the week and singalong is ‘un arc en ciel’ -rainbow.

We have been learning about the properties of 3D shapes by exploring during block play and construction and playing smart board games.
We are singing French songs everyday and can count to ten through our song. We are also keen to practise writing our numbers.
This month pre school children are visiting P1 a lot. We are really excited about starting P1 and have enjoyed talking to current P1s about what to expect.
