We also enjoyed reading the much-loved flap book, ‘Dear Zoo’ by Rod Campbell and relished lifting flaps to reveal different animals. We all got a surprise as we retold the story with the small world zoo and wild animals with the children enjoying sharing fun facts and reasons for either keeping or returning the animals to the zoo! Fabulous illustrations accompanied their individual written pages for our class story book – they particularly enjoy attaching a flap on their crate to hide their chosen animal.

In maths this week, we have been finding, subitising and representing numbers. We enjoyed practical activities using addition and subtraction discussing mathematical language. We enjoyed playing a counting the animals leg game.

Next week our topic will be the fabulous story ‘Stick man’ by Julia Donaldson and Christmas trees!
