Leigh's Nurseries Newcastle



Recently the Sunflowers have been really enjoying focusing on Julia Donaldson stories. They showed a particular interest in the story of Superworm.

The children listened to the story first to remind themselves of the key parts and characters and were able to recall them brilliantly when asked different questions. We explained to the children that we were going to take part in an activity to differentiate between ‘treasure’ and ‘trash’ in the soil – just like Superworm does in the story.

They used their fine motor skills when working with tweezers to pick up the different items and decide which pile they were for. The children maintained their focus throughout and thoroughly enjoyed the activity!

Lots of love,

Leigh and the team xxx
