The Snail & the Whale
Inspired by our current learning theme of ‘stories’, 123s chose one of their favourites to focus on this week: The Snail & the Whale. We started off by watching the video version of the story & enjoyed naming all the different animals we could see, such as dolphins, stingrays, sharks & of course, whales! We then explored our tuff spot tray, which was filled with a watery wonderland. We tried to re-create the story & loved blowing bubbles in the soapy water. We pretended the sea animals were swimming through the bubbles & exploring the seashells & paper seaweed. Later, we met the very special snail from the story & some of us were even brave enough to hold him!
