The tweenies at Melville street have been enjoying playing with our new tea set during circle time.
The children sat their teddies around in a circle on the blanket and then gave each of them a cup and saucer, taking it in turns to use the teapot.
It was lovely.

Following on from our Dear Zoo topic, the tweenies at Melville Street are starting to look at Lions and Tigers.
After reading the story of ‘The tiger who came to tea’, we created our own tiger pictures using paint and different gluing materials.
They look fantastic!
We would like to say big thank you to Lois’s mummy!
The children from Melville Street were kindly invited to Dean galleries to be the first to try out a brand new exhibition.
They had a great day exploring the wendy houses, as well a taking part in some of the different challenges.
We were even lucky enough to find a frog at the pond!
Melville Street tweenies have been learning all about the animals from their favourite story book ‘dear zoo’.
We finished off our topic with a trip to the safari park to see the animals in real life and where they stay.
It was amazing!

This week we have been talking about our caterpillars, and what is going to happen to them.
We took turns looking through the ‘Butterfly life cycle’ book with our teachers.
Using paint, we created our own caterpillars. We compared our caterpillars to our butterflies. What is the same? What is different?
Our hungry little caterpillars have eaten up all their food. They have now started to shed their skin and cocoon themselves.
Using our magnifying glass, we looked at the cocoons up close through the glass.
What will happen next…?
A big congratulations to all our amazing schoolies who graduated last week.
We are so proud of each and every one of them and wish them all the luck in the world in their next adventure!
