Ll – Lizard

This is such an exciting week – the children love it so much! They know a whole lot about sssssslithery snakes and tortoises, lizards and crocodiles, chameleons and turtles and we have loved having the opportunity to expand their knowledge this week! We have managed to have very long and involved ring time discussions, picking a different animal each day, and discussing it in depth! Reptiles are Teacher Gemma’s favorite thing so she knows more than the average Joe about them! The children learnt a lot of new vocabulary and had an absolute blast exploring our theme.

For art we made an adorable piece, and as always, we try as much as we can to use totally recycled art materials! Unfortunately, you won’t be able to see these pieces yet as they were just so cute, we decided to keep them for the Art Expo!

Wednesday was by far our most exciting day of the week, as Julian, the snake-man, brought his lovely animas for us to see. There were snakes, lizards, geckos, spiders, gogo’s, frogs and even a chinchilla. Some of the Bugs were “all hands on deck”, and petted every single animal. Others were a little bit weary and chose to rather view from afar.

We have also been hard at work preparing and practicing for our concert next week. Our Bugs have made us so proud! We hope you enjoy the show as much as we have enjoyed getting ready for it!

Thank you for a lovely and exciting week! We are looking forward to another jam packed one next week….  

And just to bring back our question of the week:  Are you a snake person?? A) Absolutely! B) Hell NOPE! We look forward to your answers…
