This week we were singing the nursery rhyme, ‘5 Little Monkeys Swinging Through the Tree’ See if your child can teach you how it goes.
We have also been learning about the features you find on different animals. Have a go at describing an animal for your child to guess. For example, I am thinking of an animal that has a long trunk and stomps, or, has stripes and looks a bit like a horse. What animal am I thinking of?
Topic: Wild Animals
Math: Describing a pattern and texture
Letters and Sounds: Following a Rhythm
We will be continuing to follow the children’s lines of inquiry and dive deeper into the topic of animals. We will be investigating habitats, what different animals eat and talk about the texture of different animals.
We will be singing the song ‘Walking in the Jungle’ and thinking of all the things we would need to take if we were going to the jungle. We will also match musical instrument sounds to animals. For example, a drum is an elephant’s stomp, a maraca is a snake slithering on the ground.
Carnival of the Animals
On Thursday 22nd of November we will be celebrating the end of our animal topic with a dress up day. Your child can come to school dressed as any animal. We love to see homemade costumes. We invite the parents to come and take pictures and listen to a quick song we have been learning between 7:45 and 8:00.
We would also ask you to bring some animal themed food for the children to share for their snack. Please coordinate with your class link to ensure a balance of food options will be there for the children. The majority of choices should be healthy such as fruits, vegetables, sandwiches, and savouries. A simple cup cake or sweet treat is nice to finish with but we want to make sure there aren’t too many sugar options.
By ensuring a healthy range of foods is available, this means your child will not need to bring their usual snack on the day. Instead we will share food buffet style.
As the weather is starting to cool down just a reminder to please label any jumpers or jackets to help us look after your child’s belongings.
