Welcome to the nurture class page! My name is Miss Dobson and I am the school SENCO at Clapgate. During the morning sessions I work with groups of children in my classroom, have a look at the pictures below to see what we have been up to so far! This half term (April - June) our learning adventure is Life Cycles - we cant wait to start exploring and learning lots of new facts! We will be learning about the life cycle of butterflies first, then frogs and then plants. We are very excited because we are going to visit Tropical World! This is so we can see real butterflies and lots of other creatures in a habitat similar to their natural environment. Look out for the photographs!
On our first day back at school we designed our own butterflies! First we read the story of The Hungry Caterpillar and then we looked at lots of different images of butterflies. We used these to help us create our own, which we put together to make a beautiful butterfly garden! Then we used paper plates to make the butterfly life cycle. We split the plate into quarters and made models for each stage of life using lots of different materials. Check out the pictures below!
