World Animal Week

Last week was world animal week and we had loads of exciting activities planned for the children.

On Tuesday the children had bear day. Each child brought in their favourite teddy, they then had a group session all about bears.

On Wednesday we had a bake sale to raise money for animals. The children baked cakes and we encourage parents to come in and buy them.
My class made simple coloured cup cakes and decorated them all individually. It's fun cooking with them and I am planning to do so once every month.

The ladybird and bee cakes were made by my sister. They sold out really quickly, she also made tiger and monkey cakes but they were all gone by the time I got my camera out.

The tray on the left are the cupcakes that were made by my class.
On Thursday the children came in dressed up as their favourite animals. Little-N was a lion, I couldn't find him a costume anywhere so together we made him one from felt the night before. We also invited a lady from the WSPA to come in and talk to the children about endangered animals. They all enjoyed the week so much! This year we are planning to do a lot more of these weeks focusing on different topics.
