Over the last couple of days the toddlers have been talking about the men and women who worked hard to give us a safe place to grow up in. We also talked about the animals who did great jobs. They made red play dough and printed with paint to make lovely poppies. We used purple paint to make poppies for the animals. On Monday the toddlers had a “ nearly 2 minute silence to think about special people”,
Today at Cart Mill the children were super excited to create their own farm outdoors. First they collected the resources for the farm and then they talked about all the animals they saw when they visited the farm during the holidays. One child was quite excited about the cow as he told his friends that he knows how to milk the cow. We also talked about what different animals like to eat and where they like to live. This conversation led to children talking about their favourite food and where they live. Some children shared their experience of feeding animals on the farm.
