Class 2 Spring 1

Our topic this half term is


Zoo Animals 

We started off the term with Zoo animals and the story 'Dear Zoo' It was lots of fun taking the animals out of the boxes to see what the zoo sent.  

We followed instructions to make our own paper chain snakes, making sure we counted the right amount pieces of paper.

We used our finger tips to make spots of the giraffes.

We had a lovely visit to 'Pet Barn' where we saw goats, ducks and rabbits. 

Some of us helped to make sentences about the animals in the story.

Jungle Animals 

We have had great fun singing and dancing to the 'Animal Boogie' song, naming the animals and copying their actions.  We also enjoyed the story monkey puzzle.  We made monkeys and leopards for the display in the classroom.

We sang the song about 5 little monkeys and some of us counted the right number of monkeys on the bed.

We had a fantastic visit to the 'winter gardens' we all felt like we were really in the jungle.

Farm Animals 

We have had lots of fun with farm animals, we had the song and stories of 'Old MacDonald' and 'A squash and a squeeze'.  In our Attention Autism session we had an egg laying hen and enjoyed splashing ducks into the pond. 

We went to feed the ducks on our educational outing, the swans were a bit scary!

We made pigs and sheep for our wall and made cow cones when we 'moooo'd' through. 

We made animal jigsaw's by ordering numbers in the right order to make the picture fit together right.

We had the most fun in our sensory tray with the small world animals.

Animals under the sea

We have loved our under the sea theme.  We had an amazing visit to the aquarium, where we watched lots of colourful fish swimming.

We had a great time singing the 5 shark song and splashing them in the water.We made octopus for the wall.  

We blew bubbles in paint to make fantastic under the water pictures and used our finger to put spots on the starfish.


We loved the story of the smiley shark and used the props to act out the story.
