Welcome to Wrens Class at Greenleas Kestrel Way. Both myself, Mrs Cosby (Class Teacher) and Mrs Byrne (Class Higher Level Teaching Assistant) are pleased to welcome you to our class page and look forward to meeting you all. Please come and talk to us to discuss your children's celebrations, achievements and we are happy to answer any questions that you may have.
We are looking forward to getting to know the children and having a great year learning, sharing new experiences and playing together. Throughout the year we will add photographs to share our learning journey which also provides you with a fun way to share in their school experiences and talk to them about their learning.
Next half term we will be exploring 'The Wonderful World of Eric Carle.' We will bring the topic to life by observing how a tiny caterpillar evolves into a beautiful butterfly whilst we focus on the story of The Very Hungry Caterpillar. Please keep checking back as we document their journey.
We are hoping to develop our outdoor area with some plants and flowers. If you have some leftover compost, pots, seeds, or plants we would love to make use of them.
You may have heard via your children that we have had some visitors in our classroom. Two weeks ago we had some very small but very hungry caterpillars arrive. We have watched with excitement as they munched their food and quickly grew, shedding their skin until they formed a cocoon. Yesterday during our phonics session the first butterfly emerged and we have been able to observe several more butterflies emerging, drying out their wings and showing us their beautiful wing patterns. Today we used magnifying glasses to look at the empty cocoons and found out they are made from a thin papery material. More photos will be added over the next week. Watch this space...
