Foundation class have been watching the life cycle of butterflies over the past few weeks. We had to look after the tiny caterpillars so that they could build the chrysalis and change into beautiful butterflies.
Today, we released the butterflies. They couldn’t wait to fly out of their butterfly garden enclosure! Some of them were happy to let us hold them gently on our hands.
Foundation had a excellent time at the Caerphilly mountain ranch,we really enjoyed the Gruffalo trail and had a wonderful time visiting the fairy forest it was magical.
Things got messy in Year 1 on Thursday when we made bird feeders!
We used 3 cups of bird seed, half a cup of peanuts and 250g of melted lard. We melted the lard in the microwave, then added the dry ingredients and mixed it all together. Once the mixture was spooned into our cups, we left it in the fridge overnight to set.
This term in Foundation we have had the opportunity to watch Chick eggs hatch. We learned about the life cycle of a chicken and learned how to take care of them. We all had an Eggcellent time and have enjoyed having the chicks in the classroom.
This week in foundation we have been learning the letter sound ‘l’. We learned that lemons and limes begin with the sound ‘l’ and we talked about what they may taste like if we eat them.
We decided we would try some to see if we liked them and what they tasted like ,some of us liked them and some of us didn’t , i am sure you can tell from our facial expressions the children who liked and disliked them.
