Our nature walk March 3, 2011

Today we went on a minibeast hunt to see if we could find an earthworm, earwigs or other insects. The children found earthworms under a pot of flowers! We had no luck finding earwigs but did manage to see a small slug and some woodlice. We made sure we didn’t disturb the minibeasts and left them where we found them.

We started a new drama based on Oscar Wilde’s story of The Selfish Giant. The drama is called “The Grumpy Old Man” and he has a fantastic garden but does not want any children in his garden. The children imagined what might be in this fantastic garden and then drew a small picture of it. We then did an activity called paper placement where the children placed their picture on the black paper which represented the garden.
