We have been learning to identify common features for different groups of animals, including wild and domestic animals. Nocturnal animals are awake during the night and sleep in the daytime. Diurnal animals are awake in the day and sleep at night time. We sorted animals into two groups Diurnal and Nocturnal animals.

Inspired by our book hook "Whatever Next" by Jill Murphy we sorted foods into groups that are healthy and unhealthy. We carefully considered Baby Bear's unhealthy choices that he took in his picnic to the moon and made him a healthy alternative of a fruit kebab rocket.

People change as they grow. We shared the story "Once There Were Giants" by Martin Waddell and encouraged the children to compare the family in the story to their own family. We discussed how we have changed since we were babies, both in our appearance and what we are able to do. We then created a timeline of events using photographs of ourselves. .
