Purple Class are enjoying reading Polar Bear, Polar Bear, What Do You Hear? This is a story that introduces many other animals. The children are learning to recognise the different characters.
Activities themed around the Polar Bear book are set up both indoors and outdoors. The children are working with play dough to create some polar bears as well as some houses and icebergs.
Sensory activity includes looking for some of the hidden animals toys that are in the Purple Class sand tray. Water trays also contain some toy animals. The children are helping them to swim!
Some key words based around the text are also around the walls of our classroom. The children are encouraged to recognise these words and use them whilst talking about their work.
