Is there any room for me ?

This week the children have been listening to the oral story of “Is there any room for me ?”

One a cold Autumnal morning a woodcutter was out in the woods with his trusted dog. Unknowingly he drops his glove on the forest floor. It then becomes a home for a mouse, frog, hedgehog, squirrel, rabbit and a badger. They move in one by one and call out to the animals “is there any room for me?”

The children have enjoyed telling the story themselves in the small world area

We started the week learning about different animals tracks and went on a trail to find some. We then made our own footprints using mud. The children have also been focusing on the hedgehog and learning about hibernation.
