STORY TIME!

Children have been using a story sack ‘ The Animal Boogie’ and exploring about different creatures in the Jungle, what do they look like? and what they do in the Jungle?

The children have been learning about animal’s actions like leaping, stomping, shaking and flapping while looking different jungle’s creatures. They were creating their own animals and coping their actions. This way they were developing sensory perceptions by exploring, expressing and communicate ideas thoughts and feelings.

I enjoy exploring events and characters in stories and other texts, sharing my thoughts in different ways. LIT 0-01c

I use drama to explore real and imaginary situations, helping me understand my world. EXA 0-14a

“Look at my black stripy Zebra”.

“Monkeys are climbing on the trees and eats bananas”.

“I can stomp like an elephant”.

“Look at my black stripy Zebra”.

“My lion name’s Simba, he is roaring in the jungle”.

“I have a waterfall beside my tree”.

The Sound Box!

“I have found 4 diamonds and I am 4years old too.”
“I got star in my egg – twinkle twinkle little star.”
“Oh I found sea shells and they’re five.”

Today in the Music area children have been playing and exploring different resources to make sound from the “The sound box musical listening and guessing game”.

They were singing;Here’s a box, here’s a lid, can you guess, inside what’s hid? Can you guess? Can you hear? If you listen with your ear! Children love routine and order, and this repeated sequence of singing, shaking, guessing, counting and then remembering at the end appeals to them. They love the reasoning and predicting element and are reassured by the repetitive pattern of the game.
The children were helping each other to count that how many pennies or shells there are inside.
