The Great Outdoors

WORLD BOOK DAY........finally!
Today we finally celebrated World Book Day and the children (and adults) had a wonderful time. We shared our favourite books, talked about the characters and even acted out the story of The Pig In The Pond.....complete with special effects from Miss Barrett involving water and splashing!!
We have been exploring farms and their animals. As you can imagine, it’s been pretty noisy and if you look below, pretty messy! We have been singing about, writing about, describing and even adding and taking away animals! Plus.........
we visited an ACTUAL REAL LIFE FARM! Have a look at the fun we had.......
Did you spot Mabel and Patrick the Shetland Ponies?

We work really hard in maths- take a look at the different things we have done so far!
Some of the fun books we have read are....
The Pig In The Pond
We're Going On A Bear Hunt
The Hungry Caterpillar
