This week we have began a three week topic, all about Africa and going on Safari. We will be looking at the stories, ‘Dear Zoo’, ‘Walking through the jungle’, and ‘The Rumble In The Jungle’ We have been focusing on the story Dear Zoo in particular this week🦒🐘🐍
The children have loved mark making in the rice tray, size ordering Zebra’s and painting different animals from the story.
We watched the story Dear Zoo on the whiteboard and made the faces of how the animals were feeling.... the grumpy camel was a favourite face! 🐪 This was a great addition to reading the lift-the flap book,
The little acorns have done some singing using the song bag and completing small group Maths activities daily - Please give me one.. snake/elephant please give me two... and sorted them into separate piles. 🐍🐘
The bigger Acorns (busy bees) have been on listening walks outside after watching the Dear Zoo story and completing more Maths group activities of comparing two groups of snakes/elephants. Which has more? Are they the same?
During the focused carpet time the children had a go at prepositions, practitioners asked the Children to stand next to, in front of & behind their friends - they were all brilliant! ⭐️
The children have loved playing outside this week in between the rain showers and enjoying the Spring sunshine - some of the children have loved playing with the balls, kicking and catching.
Have a lovely weekend and don't forget wellies and waterproofs each day, as we love exploring our outdoor provision.
