This week Hippos have been working on the text ‘Snail Trail’. They have undertaken all sorts of snail linked activities, including creating glittery snail trails to support their letter formation and making salt dough snails to develop their fine motor skills and shape knowledge.
The children have squelched (quite literally!) around the field, imagining themselves as the snail from our text, travelling over, around and under lots of objects. They even went on a snail hunt and discovered a whole range of minibeasts!
Some wonderful language and writing emerged from our snail writing and the children impressed us all with their snail addition efforts too, even beginning to try and record some number sentences.
A lovely week Hippos!
