We used salt dough to create spiral shapes and made our own snails. We will cook them and paint them when they have gone hard.
We used paper strips to wind around our fingers to create curly spiral snail shapes.
We loved using the empty sauce bottles to squirt water spiral shapes.
We looked at the picture of 'The Snail' by Henry Matisse and we then used paper to re-create our own versions.
We have loved watching the snails and we have built them our own snail trails for them to travel over, under, through, etc.
Poppy brought in a dead butterfly for show and tell and we were fascinated by it.
Child - led planning means we follow the child interests and so can be found doing all kinds of wonderful things that have no relationship to what we might be thinking about in class but that the children really want to do.
Today our first butterfly emerged. How exciting. We can't wait to see what we might find tomorrow!
