Once again, we have opened our doors to welcome the animal friends of the children, namely the family pets! This year has featured a number of dogs, cats, a guinea pig, a rabbit, a hen and a lamb. We have all enjoyed learning about how to look after these pets and becoming more understanding of how to care for our animal friends.
It was also interesting to find out the variety of pets owned by the Pre-school families and to learn that cats are the most popular owned pet at this time, taking over from dogs which were the most popular last time we investigated! The children have helped to create a table and a pictogram chart of the pets owned which they enjoy looking at and counting and comparing the numbers of different animals.
We have also been singing some new songs about pets, enjoying stories about animals, creating animal pictures and making our own books about animals!
