Our new IPC topic is ‘ Live and Let Live’ and is all about animals. To kick off this topic Year 1 completed a range of activities. We used our art and craft skills to make animal masks. Then, in the hall, we did an animal cat walk, moving like the animals on our masks. We then played some games including, sleeping lions and a monkey game. We are very lucky because in our role play areas we have a pet shop and a vet. To understand how pet shops work we took a walk to Pets at Home. As we walked around the pet shop we looked at the prices of animal food, we read instructions on how to care for the animals and even played with some dog toys! We were lucky enough to see some guinea pigs, gerbils and hamsters. Some dogs were also at the ‘dog hairdressers’ so we watched them having their hair cut.
