The little Acorns have been busy learning all about wild animals and some of the animals you might find in the zoo.
The children took a keen interest in the story ‘Dear Zoo’ by Rod Campbell which lead to some lovely exploration of size and shape using wooden boxes and toy animals. We also enjoyed looking at and counting the jungle animals in ‘1, 2, 3 Animals.
The children were able to use key words and phrases to retell the story using props, and created some marvelous art work using a variety of materials.
We used musical instruments to accompany their beautiful singing. Learning new songs and rhymes ‘Down in the Jungle’ and ‘Nelly the Elephant’
Our love of all things wild is set to continue this week – how exciting!
