To encourage excitement and talk today on the early years the children found footprints and ivy. What is it? How did it get here? Who do they belong to? Is it an animal? Or is it a person?
So many questions and predictions led from this. The children helped me read the letter and we found out it was a baby monkey! It had lost his mummy and he wanted our help.
The children discussed ideas throughout they day. Tomorrow we will introduce the story monkey puzzle and we will begin to retell and find out more!
We even meausred another childs shoe against the prints to find out if it was hers!
Creativity is key in the early years!
