RECEPTION pupils at King’s Ely Acremont have been learning about the lifecycles of mini beasts, and in particular butterflies and frogs.
The children took their learning to the water area where they used role play to talk through the lifecycles using toy frogs and water beads as props. Then they extended this idea further, and acted out how they might move about differently as they themselves aged!
In Maths, the mini beast theme continued and the children revised time and used ‘The Very Hungry Caterpillar’ story to recall and sequence the days of the week.
Adventurous learning is inspired by an exciting and dynamic curriculum. Creativity is often primarily associated with the arts (Music, Art, Dance and Drama) but at King’s Ely Acremont and Nursery creativity is equally fundamental in Science, Mathematics, Technology and all aspects of everyday life.
