Over the last 2 weeks we have begun to explore Asia. We have been doing this through music and movement incorporating it into our daily lessons. We are reading the book and learning the song ‘Animal Boogie’, which you can access on YouTube if you want to have a look at home.
On Tuesday we had our day in the Yurt, so we packed up our bean bags, blankets, hard and soft animals, our story book and some musical instruments and heading out for the day. On our way to the Yurt we had an explore of our beautiful surrounding gardens including the Flow Project and the Wildlife garden. Can you guess what we found during our walk? Lots of Jungle animals from our story, it was great fun finding a huge long snake and lots of monkeys hanging from trees. After that we needed a rest so curled up in the Yurt to have our story before Afra came to do some music and dance with us. We used lots of different instruments to take us on a journey across Asia.
During our Cookery sessions we have been using different spices which we were able to taste and smell as well as a wide variety of vegetables to make curried and savoury rice. We are definitely making the most of practicing our cutting and mixing skills.
During our P.E. sessions we are working on our movement skills by learning animal dances. We have been stomping like an elephants, stretching like a giraffe, slithering like a snake and many more movements.
