Brr! It’s cold!

Creating a penguin

The children have enjoyed learning about animals of polar regions recently. From The Little Polar Bear story to the small world animals; we have looked at photos of narwhals, penguins, humpback whales, etc.; a display has been created using different mark making skills; we have sung and danced The Penguin Dance!

There was lots to do and talk about at Forest Fun yesterday. The cold, ice and snow outside provided many opportunities for the children to experience, learn and have fun! From observing the icy puddles, falling flakes of snow (look closely and they could see the shape of the individual flakes), different-patterned foot prints and tracks. Plus the practical, physical skills involved in collecting, shaping and building with that wonderful snowy stuff!
