Animals and the Natural World
This week we have been looking at animals and the Natural World.
We talked about our pets and our favourite animals and looked at an atlas and some non-fiction books to find out which country they came from.
Do you have a pet or a favourite animal? What is it?
Which country does it come from?
Is it a hot or a cold country?
What do you think it likes to eat?
Look at the pictures below. What can you see? Where might you find them?
We also did some Forest School activities in the garden, including a bug hunt and looking at natural resources.
What can you see growing in these pictures?
Our story this week was Dear Zoo, by Rod Campbell.
Which animal is too fierce?
Is the giraffe too grumpy or too tall?
What can you remember about the camel?
What word is used to describe the elephant? Can you think of any other words that mean the same?
Is the monkey too naughty or too jumpy?
The snake is too scary. Can you think of any other words that mean the same as scary?
What word is used to describe the frog?
What sound does a frog make?
Which animal is just perfect?
See if you can make a handprint of your favourite animal from the story
We looked after our cress seeds so well that they grew big enough for us to cut and put into sandwiches with some egg mayonnaise. They were delicious!
