Caterpillar Update 🦋 🐛

🦋We have now transferred our cocoons into the net.  Three of the cocoons have fallen from the lid but we are hoping they will be ok.  And we have one little caterpillar that hasn't made the change yet.  The children have put some leaves in for it to eat.

We are hoping they will 'pop' out soon.🦋

🥕Our allotment is coming along nicely🥕

This week we will be reading the story 'Oliver's Vegetables' and creating our very own allotment in our outdoor area.

In our book 'How to grow a Dinosaur" Albies seeds create a Dinosaur world.

If you could plant some magic seeds what world would your grow?


Scientists say that volcanoes helped dinosaurs to rule the world many, many years ago. Here is a fun Science experiment that you could try at home. It is great fun but a bit messy so make sure you cover a table or use outside if it is not raining.

Dinosaur bone biscuits. I used 180g margarine. 180g sugar, 1 large egg and 400g flour and baked at 170 for 20 mins. If you have not got a bone shaped cutter you could make any other shapes the teeth are easy. Make sure an adult does the cooking in the oven and it works best if you put mixture in the fridge for half an hour after combining it all up.

Wednesday 24th February

I used the salt dough recipe to make some dinosaur fossils. You can bury them for a fossil hunt.

Can you make some dinosaur eggs? 2 cups flour, 1 cup of salt and 1 cup of water makes a great salt dough. You can ask an adult to bake them in the microwave for 1 minute to harden. Be careful they will be hot. You can decorate them when they have cooled.

Tuesday 23rd February
