Slimy snail sets out on a trail. But where exactly does he go?
How hard is for the snail to go up a hill? How long will that take?
Children were truly amazed and inspired by the Snail trail story and all the interested questions that helped us to expand our thinking and knowledge about them.
Meadows have been extra busy and super imaginative creating snails by using clay , but their imagination didn’t stop, and they have created all kind of minibeasts.
We have been using our fingers to create spiral patterns using paint and sand. Mark making is truly amazing as children use their imagination to show us adults how they understand their incredible world.
Next week: We will continue our journey through the trail of the snails and explore more about their world.
Group time: Slug or Snail?
What is the difference between them?
Listening and sharing our ideas to support children’s creativity and critical thinking. Talking about differences helps us to connect and be open to children’s questions and curiosity.
Literacy:I can listen and recall key facts – ‘Animal show’- speaking and describing a creature(small, cold, slimy, hard, soft, bright/pale…)
PSE: Isit right to keep snails and other creatures out of their natural environment ? Do you agree or disagree?
UW: How can we help to protect endangered species such as Polymita picta snail.
Math:Positional Language – linked to focus text; which way did the snail go and Matisse snail pictures. Exploring spirals.
