Last week, our Monday Polliwog group explored the meadow, looking for insects that lived there. To our delight, in spite of the drizzle, we found a grasshopper and a praying mantis, along with some crickets and ladybugs.
The creativity in the group shone as we made creatures out of clay. Take a look at our bugs!
This week, we talked about other animals that live in the forest. We came up with lots of ideas... are there monkeys in these woods too?? :) Hmmmmm....
After looking at an old, vacant wasp nest, a bird's nest, and talking about different forest creatures, we played some games where we pretended to be animals - such as geese flying south.
After walking to our play space. We discovered there are a lot of burrows there! Once again we saw great creativity as we created some additional "homes" in our play space.
I wonder what we'll notice next week at Polliwog Forest School as we explore together with our new friends!
