Here we are at Preschool wondering in the joy of Spring. It is a full sense experience with the warm bright weather, the smell of Jasmine in the air and the incredible growth in the plant world. Tiny mulberries and mulberry leaves are beginning to emerge on our white Mulberry Tree and one of our families has gifted us baby silkworms to nurture through their life cycle.
Silkworm on a mulberry leaf goes wriggle, wriggle, wriggle
Silkworm on a mulberry leaf goes munch, munch, munch
Silkworm on a mulberry leaf goes to sleep
And when he sleeps he has a dream of places he has never seen
He opens his eyes, is wide awake, spreads his wings, he's a moth-afly, flutterby moth-afly, fly fly
(adapted from Caterpillar on a soft green leaf by Ebba Bodame)
Snow peas and sugar snap peas are growing from their flowers and the children are very excited to spot them and check their growth.
