Bugfest in EYFS

We are extremely proud to have been Highly Commended for ‘Most Creative Learning Through Play (Early Years)’ at the Muddy Stilettos Best Schools Awards 2023, and there’s certainly been plenty of creativity, learning and play going on! In Nursery, the children have been using scales to measure weight. Continuing the ‘minibeasts’ theme they weighed ladybirds and used words such as ‘heavy’, ‘light’ and ‘the same’ to describe the weight of these minibeasts. In Reception, the children have been having fun refining their fine motor skills by making some beautiful butterfly cushions! Last Wednesday, the brilliant Nick from Bugfest came to share his knowledge about minibeasts large and small. He showed the children millipedes, African land snails, stick insects and spiders, plus tarantulas and a Goliath bird eating spider! The children learnt that minibeasts have exoskeletons and were able to see Nick hold the insects and magnify them under his special camera. It was exciting to see them enlarged on the screen!
