Dear Zoo

What pet would you like and why?

This week the children in Reception have been reading Dear Zoo by Rod Campbell. In it, a child writes to a zoo to send them a pet and then rejects most of the animals that are sent for a variety of reasons. Our children have been writing their own letters to a zoo to choose their favourite pet and explain why they want that animal. They have also been using recycling materials to create their own animals and insects. In the outside area, the children continue to hunt and care for insects, creating homes for them. 

In Maths, we have been reading the book How Many Legs by Kes Gray and Jim Field. It is a funny book about how many legs are in a room as more and more creatures come to a party! The children have been adding up the legs on toy animals to write number sentences.
