We were so excited on our return to Nursery this year as we had some new friends to meet. 7 nymph (baby) Stick Insects! Together with our families, we thought up new names for them.

We love looking after them by collecting privet and ivy leaves from the school grounds, which is what they love to eat but also hide amongst. We learnt that as they get bigger, they moult their skin to make room for growth. We looked at some shed skins through the magnifying glasses.

To keep their house nice and humid, we take it in turns to spray water on their leaves and love to help clean away their mess.

 

We love showing care and concern for living things

We use what we already know to learn new things
