ELC Hoppers Newsletter (18 November)

Over the last two weeks, as the second part of our Animal Theme, we have talked about zoos and farm animals. We also took virtual trips to zoos and farms to see all the animals we love. We had a fabulous Animal Party and pretended to walk through the jungle to search for animals. Our favourite game is "Guess what animals it is? We must be very quiet, listen to what sound they make, and find it within our classroom. Silly Mr. Old Macdonald left the barn door open one night, and all the farm animals ran out. It took us almost a whole day to help him find all the animals and put them back in the barn. We ended the theme with a messy play! We helped the dirty animals take a bath, squeezed milk from cows, and saved the animals from spaghetti. Next week, we’ll start a new theme, "Fairytales.”
