Happy New Year! Our Topic this term in "Animals." All the Red Robins and Reception Class are learning all about mammals, fish, reptiles, amphibians and mini beasts.
Our role-play area is set up as a vets in Reception and an animal sanctuary in the Red Robins. We have been learning about warm and cold blooded creatures and exploring all the different types of reptiles. The Red Robins have made turtles and snakes from re-cycled materials. Reception children are making a model of a sausage dog from paper mache! The children voted to make a dog and we love Schnitzel Von Krum (with a very low tum), in the Hairy Maclary books by Lynley Dodd.
We will be having a visit from "Ranger Ross," who will be bringing a selection of interesting creatures with him.
We will also be taking care of our own animals, Biscuit and Badger the guinea pigs and Flipper the fish. If you would like to take Biscuit and Badger home for a weekend, or even look after them in the school holidays, please come and speak to Charlie Coates and it can easily be arranged.
If you have any interesting pets, or puppies/kittens you would like to bring in to show the children, please contact us to arrange this. In the past, we have had a bearded dragon, two sheep and baby goats visiting us!
