Nocturnal Animals

Over the last few weeks we have spent some time each morning listening to stories and learning facts about various animals. We learned that the badger and the fox are nocturnal animals. This means they are awake at night and sleep during the day. We think that is very exciting!!! We wondered what other animals were nocturnal, and have discovered that bats and hedgehogs are too!! We hope to discover even more about nocturnal animals.

We have enjoyed spending some of our busy time looking at the books in more detail, and asking questions about them.

We have spent time making beautiful collages of our family group animals that we have put up in the Gym. If you haven’t already seen them, you’ll be able to at our Harvest Festival!

We made a beautiful moon to shine on our lovely animals and painted labels for them too.

We also made an amazing discovery of our own!! A family of hedgehogs are living very close to us, and we got the chance to have a little look at them. We were very quiet so we didn’t frighten them………

Lastly, we are going to have a special visitor very soon – from Snuffles Hedgehog Rescue Centre. We can’t wait!!!!
