Understanding Growth & Change
In order to get a concrete understanding of ‘Growth and change’, the Nursery 3 children have been working on two very exciting projects lately: a vegetable garden, and looking after caterpillars. Every day we observe what is happening, watching how plants grow and change, as little flowers, fruit, and vegetables come out of our plants. Our caterpillars are also growing very quickly, and every day we change their bed and put fresh leaves for them to eat. To our surprise, we discovered today that caterpillars shed their skin while they are growing and lots of outgrown skin was found in their ‘house’. We cannot wait for them to turn into butterflies!
