Our book of the week was "Whatever Next", we had lots of fun exploring our space play tray, building rockets with boxes outside and making our own miniature rockets. We learnt two songs, "Zoom Zoom Zoom, we're going to the moon" and "5 Little men in a flying saucer". We also had fun making a shopping list for our picnic on the moon with Baby Bear.

This week we had some very exciting visitors in school, some had eight legs, some had none, some slithered slowly and others ran really fast! It was 'Meet a Creature'!

 

We got to meet lots of different creatures from snakes and bearded dragons to tarantulas and chinchillas. We were all incredibly brave and had a turn looking at the creatures, some of us even held them! It was great fun and we learnt some really interesting and funny facts! Did you know that on average a snail has around 12000 teeth? And it's teeth aren't in it's mouth, they are in it's stomach!
