Leigh's Nurseries Newcastle

Insect Hotel!


As spring is starting we have been learning about the changes this will have to nature and all of the animals.

We created an insect hotel using natural resources collected from around the village. The children loved exploring the different textures and smells, using their pincer grip to transfer the leaves and branches around the tray.

They enjoyed finding the insects hidden under the leaves and branches; and placing the bee in the beehive. Their strong exploratory impulses navigated them through the activity to find all the insects brilliantly!

Lots of love,
Everyone at Leighs xxx
