  1. Hey I am beginning a topic on animals soon. Does anyone have any fun ideas for activities with a reception class? I have though of quite a few; sorting animals using different criteria, matching mum and baby, looking at patterns e.g zebra and tiger and recreating these using different materials, looking at what foods animals give us and making things with the foods, looking at the work the RSPCA or Battersea Dogs and Cats home do, ICT games, creating bird feeders to put outdoors and observe birds that visit, role play, small world, masks, visits from vets and animals......Thank you!

  3. Wow - loads of ideas already. What about making foot prints - animals or children out of clay or creating a trail using foot prints. This could then encourage writing - clues/findings.
