All about animals

The Reception class have been learning about animals. They have been naming and describing a variety of jungle, African and sea animals and have explored habitats and the use of camouflage.

Using a variety of materials, they made their favourite animals, and from clay sculpted shimmering fish. Reception then had a surprise visit from a baby penguin who was eager to learn more about his species. They used information books to gather a range of facts all before mummy penguin came to take her baby back to Antarctica.

In the final week of their topic, the children learnt about birds and after listening to the story Owl Babies they made up a new version of the story using their own owl puppets.
