The Farm Theme

Ms Bernie has set out the Farm theme and introduced the theme to the children during group time discussion Ms Bernie and the children spoke about the different farm animals that will be at ‘The Show’. Lillie engaged in the conversation by explaining which farm animals she has at her home. And these animals are baby chicks, goats, cats and dogs. 

In addition to the discussion about farm animals we then spoke about ‘The Show’. We discussed that we need to be safe and sensible because lots of people go to ‘The Show’. Then Ms Bernie asked “How can we be safe and sensible at The Show?” Lillie said by holding Mummy and Nanna’s hand and Indiana said by listening to Mummy and Daddy. And Kiki said she won’t run on the road. Ms Bernie responded by saying that is a sensible choice.

Each child gathered and interpreted the theme differently and learnt new and different things that they were interested in. Lillie, Bella and Maxwell enjoyed learning about cows and the process of the milk and the different products that can be made using milk. Jude and Thomas were interested in horses because one of their hobbies are riding horses. Jackson, Rex, Mickey and Ben were more interested in the different heavy machineries that are used on the farm. And Freya, Aurora, Niamh and Tyler were more interested in learning about the different foods that grow on the farm and are then transported to the shops and markets for people to buy.
