Spring 1

Cornerstones Topic....
PAWS CLAWS and WHISKERS!

Our topic this term is all about animals. We will be learning about where the animals live and their habitats as well as being very creative with art, making sculptures of animals and looking at their patterns.

 

Entry Point!

The Animal Lady...

During this visit we met lots of exciting animals and creatures, we also learned lots of interesting facts about them.

 

One of the animals we met had a special talent.

It's tail will fall off when a predator bites it and then the tail will grow again after 2 weeks.

Can you guess which animal that was?

 

Was it...

  1. A Giant African Cockroach

    2. A Tortoise

    3. A Leopard Gecko

Get creative

When the animal lady visited us, we met a lovely hedgehog called Horace.

We discovered they were an endangered species and that we can actually do a lot to help save them.

Hedgehogs love to eat cat food and need somewhere safe and warm to sleep during the day.

Fun fact
Did you know?

Samsam Bubbleman (real name Sam Heath) is the creator of the world's largest free floating soap bubble, but he keeps his recipe a secret. He says, "With the right stuff, you can make big bubbles with anything - a coat hanger or even just your hands." You could try this at home!
