Learning through play


We can learn a lot through play! This week we want you to learn through 'finding out and exploring'

Last week the children in school worked hard in the forest to create a bug hotel. We discussed how we can make it inviting and chose leaves and broken logs that we could see bugs had been accessing already. 

Can you find a place in your garden or local area and create your own? 

You can use stick, rocks, bricks, leaves old plant pots, pine cones or whatever you can find. 

Use your sense to explore the world around you

Show curiosity about objects

Show a can do attitude


Can you look closely at similarities and differences? Can you make observations of plants and animals and discuss changes?
