As part of topic our topic on 'Animals', Reception Class have been busy learning about and caring for pets this week!
Reception have really enjoyed taking on the role of vets in our new role play area. This is definitely where you want to bring your pets if they get poorly. It doesn't matter what the ailment is - our Reception children are here to help!
In English, we have been reading 'Mog and the V.E.T' and 'Thank you for looking after my pet', thinking about what different pets need and how to care for them. We used our phonics to write sentences about Mog as well as pet pet zig zag books.
We also shared our experiences with our own pets and Donna even bought her pet snail Ferrari into school for us to look after for a day!
Our vision statement for Early Years is:
Be an explorer. Be a trier. Be a talker. Be a creator.
There has most certainly been some wonderful talking, trying and creating going on this week.
Meet Ferrari the African Land Snail!
