The children drew fabulous illustrations to accompany their individual written pages for our class display. They particularly enjoy attaching a flap on their crate to hide their chosen animal. Creating lion face collages with mixed media and small world play in a zoo tray have complemented our work in the classroom. It was lovely to listen some interesting discussions about which wild animals could live together and the different habitats they live in. We enjoyed listening to the Saint-Saens The Carnival of the Animals with Joanna Lumley & The London Mozart Players.
In mathematics this week, we have been learning to tell the time using o’clock and have been learning about days of the week, as well as discussing differences between day and night. We made clocks out of a hula hoop, numbers with sticks for hands and worked with a partner to place the numbers in the correct place. We also made ourselves a paper plate clock to practise telling the time o’clock at home!
Next week, we start our Christmas activities and our topic about Christmas trees!
