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🥕

World Book Day!!
Dress up as your favourite book character at home or for school this Thursday. Share lots of stories at home and have a reading fun filled day!!
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.
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
As our new story this week is all about dinosaurs here are some fun activities you could try.
Have a go at making and designing your own dinosaur, here are some ideas but you could use any crafts you like!
Valentine's Day is approaching.....Why not have a go at some of the following activities at home this week if you get chance.
Make some salt dough hearts. Follow the recipe below. Leave them to air dry or you can even bake them. Use paints, glitter, buttons, sequins etc to decorate them however you like! Give them to someone you love to make them smile!
Get busy crafting with materials you may have at home. Or why not make a valentine's card for someone and post it to them. There are also some lovely colouring pictures if you can print them at home or draw your own!💞💘💖

An Introductory VideoBefore you start here are some key things: -Importantly, use the biggest screen you have available that is practical. These sessions work much better on a TV, PC, laptops or tablet than they do on the smaller phone screen. However, they will still work on smaller devices. -Have fun, it doesn’t matter if your child isn’t fully attending to the videos. You can watch them and take some hints and tips for games you could play with your child at a different time. -Children can simply watch the videos unsupported, but to get the most out of the project consider being on hand to support, and provide resources like a teddy, dolly etc. Loads more information about the resources are alongside each video. The resources you see in the video will be available to purchase as hard copies in the future. If you are signed up for updates you will hear all about it.
