The Meadow Suite - Termly Overview
This term in The Meadow we focused on learning about Farms and the animals that live on a farm.
We enjoyed reading The boy on the bus which is a hilarious story all about farm animals. We sang Old MacDonald at group time and learned the Makaton signs for the animals too.
In our small world play we explored with blocks and boxes alongside small farm animal figures.
This led us up to our exciting annual farm visit! We all went to visit the animals some of us with our Mummies and Daddies too. It was very exciting to see the animals in our nursery playground!
