EYFS Jungle Animals

January 28, 2016

Children in EYFS have been busy learning about Jungle Animals. They learned to differentiate jungle animals from others and also learned about patterns: spotty, stripy, zigzags, circles, and spirals. They investigated animals that use camouflage to protect themselves from danger and role-played with jungle animals (lions, tigers, zebras, giraffes, rhinos, parrots and leopards). They were also involved in many hands on activities, like counting jungle animals and writing the correct number, sorting jungle animals, ordering them according to height, matching number sets, counting set-jungle animals. The teacher then read them some books related with the theme like: ‘Walking through the Jungle’, ‘Deep in the Rainforest’, ‘A busy, busy day in Tinga Tinga’, and ‘Wild Cats’. Now who wants to go on a safari?
