We love farm animals and spring weather!
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 completing farm animal jigsaws, cutting and sticking farm animals, counting farm animals and drawing and painting animals and making their own chicks.
The weather changed to be spring-like, so we took advantage of this and went outside as much as we could! The children enjoyed playing in the sand and water, blowing bubbles, painting the house and, drawing with chalk.
On Friday the children enjoyed wearing red and making Red Nose biscuits for Red Nose Day.
Stars of the day this week were Libby, Addison, Martin, Ezra and Theo – well done to you all.
