         Our Topic this half-term is
      'How many pebbles on the beach?'
 

Oh, I do like to be beside the seaside! How many pebbles on the beach? Which creatures live beside the sea? It’s time to breathe in the salty air and explore the seashore.

This half term, we’ll be discussing the wonders of the seashore, sharing our beach holidays pictures, collecting interesting items, bouncing beach balls, building sandcastles. In the classroom, we’ll explore which natural and man-made seashore objects float and which sink, and we’ll learn about the features of crabs, fish, seabirds and starfish. In our literacy lessons, we’ll look at a range of seaside-themed books, songs and poems, and practise writing in the sand. Using our mathematical skills, we’ll catch and count plastic fish. We’ll also learn to move like a crab, make salt dough shell mosaics, set up an ice cream shop and use our imaginations to put beach pebbles to good use. What will we create? At the end of the project, we’ll use percussion instruments to play along to our seashore-themed version of The Wheels on the Bus. We’ll also recall the different objects we found on the beach and guess which ones are inside the mystery boxes!
