British Wild Animals Day

My name is Rachel and I have my own musical company called Music Minors. Today we are going to explore British wild animals. We will be talking about the animals we can see in the British countryside, making pictures, masks and going on an animal hunt too.

9.30am Activity:
Making a Natural Picture

Using the hedgehog template can you make a natural picture? Go out into the garden and find sticks, grass, cuttings from plants and make a lovely natural picture. Follow Rachel as she guides you in making this picture. Make sure you get lots of natural bits from your garden.

Grown Ups:

You need:

Paper

PVA glue

Paint brush

Sticks

Grass

Plants and cuttings

You can draw your own woodland animal of your choice and enjoy decorating them. This activity inspires children’s creativity and knowledge and understanding of the world.

10.30am Activity:
5 Little Speckled Frog Song

Sing this song with Rachel, learn counting and different actions.

 

Grown Ups:

Rachel also tells you about where frogs live and their surroundings. Have you seen a frog? Did you know about how they change colour to match their surroundings? This activity supports children’s expressive arts and design and knowledge and understanding of the world.

1:30pm Activity:
Making a Fox Mask

Using the fox template you can decorate your fox mask with colouring pencils or pens. Or even paint it if you’d like.

Grown Ups:

Rachel shows you how to make the mask and how to attach a stick or lollipop stick to hold it to your face. The children can be imaginative and creative with the colours of the fox. Use the mask to bring your fox to life and role play about woodland animals with your child. This activity supports children’s creativity and imagination.

2:30pm Activity:
Going on a Wild Animal hunt

Using the attachment, follow Rachel and go on an animal hunt around Rachel’s garden. Can you spot and identify all the animals in her garden?

Grown Ups:

Tick the animals off as you go on an adventure in the garden with Rachel. Have you seen any of these animals before? Where did you see them? This activity supports children’s knowledge and understanding of the world.

If you've finished these and still have time for fun...
