In Oak and Acorn we have been focusing on our new ‘Winter’ topic and exploring the different winter animals. In Oak, we read the story ‘Say Hello to the Snowy Animals’ by Ian Whybrow and Ed Eaves and went on an animal hunt within the classrooms to find the characters of the story. The children found an Orca whale, a Snowy Owl, a Seal and a Polar Bear and were able to use these as props when retelling the story.
In both Oak and Acorn, the children have been Creative Connies and have been making their own penguins using a variety of textiles. These are now proudly displayed in the classrooms. Well done Early Years!
