Underground Animals

We are having great fun playing in our own underground burrow, and learning all about the different animals that live underground, from huge bears to tiny ants. We have also enjoyed making masks of our favourite underground animals, and a huge painting of a rabbit warren.

Our Castle Role Play

We have had a great half term learning all about castles, and who lived in them. We have designed our own Coat of Arms, and made shields. We made a huge beanstalk growing right across our classroom, Jack climbing up it, and a huge giant to live in the castle. The giant’s goose hid some golden eggs in Forest school for us to find.

“Away in a manger”

Our Nativity Play, “Away in a Manger” was a huge success. Well done to all the children for their lovely dancing and clear speaking.
