We started our new topic off with a creative context day, where we spent a day immersing ourselves in our new topic - The Ugly Bug Ball. The children collaged minibeasts and even designed their own. They worked with Miss Cutler to think about the new role play area, writing a list of the things they wanted to include, gathering resources, and painting the inside. The result is our Rainforest Bug House!
Our topic also includes safari animals, so the children all got into a jeep and went on safari in the classroom, snapping photos of the different safari animals they saw. They designed a poster for Africa and wrote a postcard whilst on safari too! They painted animal faces and looked at different animal print patterns as well. What a busy day!
