We have now come to the end of our Brilliant Bug Ball Unit of learning and this coming week we have our Reflection Week. The children will have the opportunity to reflect on all their new skills and knowledge that they have learned across their Minibeast Unit. We have selected a different theme of Unit focused learning each day. The children will have opportunities to choose their favourite learning activities from the unit and show and discuss their new learning with the other children and teachers. We will also go outside again on another bug hunt to reflect on our new learning and practice our new skills in finding and identifying Minibeasts in their habitat!

Our Nursery Exit Point will be the children’s Brilliant Bug Ball! The children will take responsibility in preparing decorations and costumes for their party. We have learned lots of Minibeast and flower songs and poems during this unit which we will perform to parents on Wednesday morning at 8.30am. This will be a short 10 minute performance, it would be great if you can come and watch. 

Remember to wear any Minibeast t-shirts  or anything you may own linked to Minibeasts on Wednesday. Don’t worry if you don’t have any as we have made special costumes that we can wear in class.

The children will have a big focus on the personal quality Reflection (which was previously called Thoughtfulness). They will practice thinking back on their favourite learning, games, role-play and crafts in the Unit. We will use our personal Learning Journey books to help us to reflect. You can take home your Learning Journey books to keep next Friday on the last day of school. Please also take home PE clothes and inside shoes over the holidays to prevent them getting lost. The play hall will be used for summer school in the summer so it is best if they are taken home and brought back when we return after summer.
