We're Going on a Lion Hunt

What animals would you like to see on your adventure?

This week in Nursery we have been reading the story 'We're Going on a Lion Hunt' by David Axtell. The children have enjoyed looking at the similarities and differences between this book and the more familiar story 'We're Going on a Bear Hunt' by Michael Rosen. The children have enjoyed drawing their own story maps looking for different animals and we have been hunting for Unicorns, Dinosaurs and Spiders and may more exciting creatures. We have been finding out about different animals that live in Africa. The children have had lots of fun using binoculars and magnifying glasses to act out their own hunts in the outside area. We have also been looking at artwork by Olga Shvartsur who creates rainbow prints of different animals. The children have enjoyed experimenting with colour over pen drawings and they have created some fantastic artwork. For our maths learning we have been thinking about weight and capacity. The children have been packing different boxes to take on their adventures and finding out which box can hold all the equipment that they need. They have also been trying to make sure that their boxes are not too heavy to carry.
