Transition have been busy exploring our new topic of Rainforests! We have been looking at what animals live there and all about the people of the rainforest.
In our role play room, a rainforest has appeared with a range of animals living in it and the children have enjoyed playing in there and acting as the different creatures. One child said “I am a Howler monkey they live at the top of the trees in the rainforest.”
We have also spoken a lot about how our homes are different to those of the rainforest “My house is made from bricks not sticks and leaves” We have created our own rainforest hut in the playground complete with hanging vines, fire pit and have been crushing and cutting up fresh herbs to make our food. Great fun has been had by all and our imagination is running wild.
