Our very own real live caterpillars have arrived at nursery! They’re super cute and super wiggly. We are all very excited to watch them munch down on their food, get nice a big, build their cocoon and turn in to beautiful butterflies!
We were all so very surprised today to find a bird had built its nest in our toys outside! We got an even bigger surprise to see 4 baby birds sleeping in there. With some quick research and watching for the Mummy bird returning we have learnt that they are blackbirds.
Today we said goodbye to our ducklings, Quackers, Lilly, Roxy, Puddles, and Dandalion. We have had an amazing experience watching them hatch and grow. We have all produced some amazing work around our ducklings and we are going to miss them very very much!
But no need to be sad! They are off to a wonderful home to live and explore nature. They will one day grow old enough to provide eggs for future learning experiences.
Our Ducklings are starting to get pretty big now and are all developing their own little personalities. The children have picked all their names so we thought it was time we introduce them all!
Meet Quackers! Our first duckling, we named him this because it was our most suggested name and this cheeky little duckling is a bit quackers as he hatched during the car ride to school!
This Is Lilly are most energetic duckling! It’s almost impossible to get her to keep still! Not many children have been able to hold her yet as she’s just so fast!
This is Roxy, we decided she needed a proper Rockstar name to go with her cool look! She has become one of our most mischievous ducks and often tries to jump out the cage whenever its open!
This is Puddles, our only duckling we’ve managed to see hatch! the afternoon nursery we’re very lucky to spot! He is slowly becoming our biggest duckling and is super fluffy.
Last but not least this is our youngest but clearly most photogenic duckling Dandelion. He was only born Friday morning jus before Miss Ashton got to school. He is a lot smaller than the other ducklings so he does get scared easily, the children have not been able to hold him…yet!
We have been learning about Jack and the Beanstalk and doing lots of work around the story in phonics. All our work was just too good to not show off! Look at the fabulous display we’ve been able to put together with everyone’s work!
Introducing Puddles! Our first all yellow duckling! The afternoon nursery we’re very very lucky and got to watch Puddles hatch yesterday just before home time. He has spent the night in the incubator to get dry and has now joined his friends in the brooding cage. He is a little wobbly and keeps falling over and he very much loves cuddles!
