As carnival is over, we started our next theme, which will accompy us for the next couple of weeks: Farmyard animals!
After our usual singing round - where we focussed on farm songs like "Old McDonald" or "The farmer's in the dell" - we started a new game - the surprise box! The children put their hands in a box full of hay and pull out small plastic animals, like horses, tigers or dinosaurs. Then, they had to decide, if that animal a farmyard animal or not!
Afterwards, the children listened to the beautiful story "What the ladybird heard" by Julia Donaldson before they sponge-printed their own sheep.
