The fantastic world of mini-beasts has been keeping us busy in the Michael Faraday Nursery! The children have been reading the story of The Very Hungry Caterpillar as part of this work, and as preparation for our latest visitors to the Nursery – a delivery of caterpillars! We have been observing how these have grown in size as we feed them each day. We have held class discussions about why it is important to respect mini-beasts and their environment, and making sure that we return any mini-beasts back where we found them. Plenty of artwork has been produced around this topic, as well as all of the Nursery children making their own mini-beast books.
