Last week the Acorn Preschool children explored animals under the sea. We have loved reading the story ‘Tiddler’ – which gave us lots of new experiences with sea creatures. Eels, sting-ray, jellyfish, sharks and octopus all feature in this story.

To build on the interest of under the sea animals, the children have created artwork through drawing, painting and collage.

The children enjoyed combining playdough with other media to create their own sea creature.


In the maths area, the children have explored numbers through a magnetic fishing game and also counting how many altogether through the fish bowl game.

The children have even had a go at expressing themselves through movement to music – as different under sea animals, including jellyfish, shark and octopus.


Song of the week was ‘Head, shoulders, knees and toes’ which the children have explored naming parts of their body.  They love it when this song gets faster and faster.
