What a day we have had…
it started with us all coming into school dressed as animals. We came as all sorts of mammals, reptiles, birds and amphibians. Can you guess what we were?
Then after we’d seen each other we went for a walk around our environment to find all the cool animals Charlotte Beardmore had leant us. We had a real size Tiger, some Giraffes (which some of us were extra excited about) and a zebra. Outside we had our zoo set up and Maddie’s Diego toys. We also had a game to throw balls in the lion and monkeys mouth and animal playdoh near the Zoo shop and café.
Inside Miss Irwin was face painting, Aliesha was helping us finish our animal handprints and there was an animal writing table too. Outside in the zoo we luckily had some zoo keepers to keep an eye on some wondering Tigers and we had lots of people making animal chocolate pies and water bowls in the mud kitchen for the zoo animals.
By lunchtime we were ready to go and scare Alison with our newly painted faces and arms and to eat some animal food! grrr
in the afternoon we had some animal games. We started with describe the animal. We had to describe the animal in the bag and see if our friends could correctly guess what it was to win a prize. Then we had animal bingo where we could win a prize for a line for a full house, followed by waft the fish.
Then we sat down for some animal snacks before our special visitor arrived.
Charlotte came into our classroom and she had brought some puppets, music and bubbles. We got to learn sign and songs-like Old MacDonald and five little monkeys. We had to try and make the monkeys jump really high on the bed, it was awesome!
Charlotte also taught us the sign for our favourite animals and then she blew us some magical bubbles around the classroom. She was extremely kind and gave Miss Irwin some bubbles for us.
After Charlotte went we went outside for some animal playtime before going home.
What a fun packed animal day we have had.
