This week we have listened to the story ‘Giraffes Can’t Dance’. The children researched facts about the jungle and then drew a picture and labelled it. We then made sock puppets of animals you might find in the jungle. We wrote a materials list and sentences about how we made the sock puppets.

Loose parts and more in FS2!

We have been using loose parts to create our own fantasy worlds. We have been carefully learning to use tools to hammer and screw into wood. We have been planting, harvesting, preparing and eating our own vegetables.
