This week we have learned all about farm animals. At the beginning of the week, the children watched a video explaining what type of produce we get from farm animals, such as milk and eggs. We have been strengthening our fine and gross motor skills by having duck races in the water using spray bottles, cutting and sticking farm animals and placing them where we think they would sleep on the farm, & using tweezers to match the quantity of coloured farm animals to the numicon flashcard.The children have been doing lots of mark making by drawing farm animals and making craft such as; cotton wool sheep, marble painting pigs, tissue paper cows, fork painting chicks, and painting tractors using cotton buds. Wraparound have created their own farm animal masks independently, by cutting, colouring and sticking. Playdough has been used to create animals on the farm, and mathematical language in relation to size has been explored with the various sized tractors in the sand.
Next weeks topic will be based on jungle animals.
