Acorns love farm animals and spring flowers!
This week the Acorn Preschool children have been learning about farm animals and their babies. Our song of the week was ‘Old Macdonald’. Our book of the week ‘I Love Animals’ by Flora McDonnell – helped us with learning the new words for baby farm animals – including lamb, kid, kitten, puppy, calf and foal. We have also loved exploring the sounds the animals make! Children love making donkey sounds and making the gobble sound of the turkey!
The children explored lots of play around farm animals – including competing farm animal jigsaws, cutting and sticking farm animals, counting farm animals and drawing and painting animals.
The weather changed to be spring-like, so we took advantage of this and went outside as much as we could! The children noticed how the spring flowers are growing, and had a go at painting pictures of daffodils for themselves.
Stars of the day this week were Orla, Thea, Martin and Alexander – well done to you all.
