This week, we read all about Rosie, a very lucky little hen who goes for a walk. But who is that on her tail? A silly old fox!
We had a great time looking at all the farm animals (let's not forget we also spotted A TRACTOR) and trying to guess whether the fox was going to get Rosie this time. There was already a lot of learning going on here, about making predictions, connections and sequencing. Not bad for a crew of 4-month-olds to 2-and-a-half-year-olds, don't you think?
We then enjoyed painting our very own chickens (and the grown-ups' clothes, sorry) using square and triangular bits of sponge, to create colour and patterns, like on Pat Hutchins' bright illustrations.
As promised, the links to the songs and videos:
Rosie’s Walk, the animated version
Sandra Boynton’s Philadelphia Chickens by the Bacon Brothers
Chicken song - [Geco Remix] – for some mad dancing
And for something out of this world… Takeo Ischi - New Bibi Hendl (Chicken Yodeling) You have been warned!
Thanks all and see you next time!
