This week the caterpillars joined in a story- 10 in the bed.

Lots of animals fell out of the bed with a crash and a bang-so in our role play room we set up a little pet vets so that we could take care of these injured animals.

We played in our dolly hospital, looking after all the poorly toys, dressed up as doctors and nurses. in the craft room we created a giant kangaroo, we all decorated our own kangaroo craft folders as well as going on a kangaroo hunt in the garden.

Week 1

If you like to dance and you sometimes sing, why don't you do the animal thing.

This week we joined in with the animal bop, learning the names of different animals and learning to move in different ways as we pretended to be penguins, ducks, lizards and elephants.

In the role play room we played with the small world zoo and played a 'trip to the zoo' circle game, choosing animals out of a bag to name and make the animal sounds.

In the craft room we helped create a giant lizard and chose to either paint the lizard using a variety of tools as well as selecting craft materials to stick ont he lizard.
