This week feels like a week of ‘coming back to life’…..the sun is shining again and it is warmer than it was, the flowers are starting to bloom, and, the best thing of all for Alfie ; the insects are starting to come out!
Yesterday Alfie and his friend Lilly, spent literally hours observing and collecting ants in the ‘insect city’….
..an annual classic, which tells the story of Alfie the bear (no, really, 😊) who keeps waking up from hibernation to tell him mum that Spring has arrived.
I did another blackboard drawing depicting a bird’s nest with eggs, new leaves on trees, and tiny chicks with their mother hen…
We havn’t got round to putting it up again yet, and as there is a bird’s nest still inside, it gave us the perfect opportunity to observe it, and discuss what kind of things a bird uses to make his nest soft….
