Our six legged visitor……..

This week at preschool we found a very interesting six legged visitor in the form of a Stag Beetle.

We put plugged the magnifier into the big screen to show the children up close, and we also put it into the display box so the children could all get a good look before we released it back into the garden.


Our beautiful Butterflies ๐Ÿฆ‹๐Ÿฆ‹๐Ÿฆ‹๐Ÿฆ‹

Hello everyone,

Well our caterpillars are now beautiful butterflies.

All our children have been watching the different stages of the caterpillars and we had some very smiley faces when they saw the butterflies.

We will now prepare to release them with the children.


Caterpillar Update!!! ๐Ÿ›๐Ÿ›๐Ÿ›๐Ÿ›๐Ÿ›

Following our blog last week, we can confirm that the caterpillars are now fully in chrysalis transition stage and have been moved from the chrysalis station into the mesh habitatย  so that the children can all watch the miracle of metamorphosis up close.

They are all very excited and are looking forward to seeing them as butterflies ๐Ÿฆ‹๐Ÿฆ‹๐Ÿฆ‹๐Ÿฆ‹๐Ÿฆ‹

We will keep you updated


Anyone for Ice-Cream ?

The children turned the mud kitchen into a Little Owls Ice-cream Parlourย  today, with their one of a kind Forest Shaving Foam Sundaes!ย  ๐Ÿจ๐Ÿจ

A fantastic effort to keep the sunshine with us.

Our caterpillars have arrived !!!! ๐Ÿ›๐Ÿ›๐Ÿ›๐Ÿ›๐Ÿ›

The children are all very excited at our annual arrival of caterpillars to preschool

They arrived safely last Wednesday and we have been watching them eat the food and grow.

Today we have all discovered that they are now hanging in their chrysalis from the lid, not long now before we see beautifulย  ๐Ÿฆ‹๐Ÿฆ‹๐Ÿฆ‹, which we will share with you all before we set them free.

Dinosaur Day ๐Ÿฆ•๐Ÿฆ–

Today the children were looking at a factual book all about dinosaurs.

They then asked for the chalk and a tape measure to draw a dinosaur as big as 7 metres tall, and then wanted an adult to chalk around them while they lay on the floor next to the dinosaur chalk print to see how “big” it would be next to their own chalk prints.

The photo of the outcome is fabulous ๐Ÿ˜€๐Ÿฆ–

Pass it on
Happy Friday Everyone!

This weekend, why not try and spread a bit of happiness with your little one by snuggling up and sharing this book by Sophie Henn?ย  Itโ€™s called โ€˜Pass It Onโ€™.

Afterwards, why not try a few of the ideas in the book and then talk about the lovely things you and your little one were able to โ€˜pass onโ€™?

Was it something terrific?ย  A smile, a chuckle, a hum or a hug?ย  Or did they spot something wonderful?ย  Was something passed back to them?

Pass on a Happy Weekend!ย  From the Family Time Tips Team via Little Owls Community Pre-school
