This week we asked the question ‘What can you do at the seaside?'. We talked about our experiences at the seaside and what we did whilst there. We looked at pictures of the seaside and made a list of all the things that we can do there, such as building sandcastles, having an ice-cream, exploring rock pools, walking on the pier, riding the funfair and eating fish and chips. We also learned a little about sea-sides long ago and watched a Punch and Judy show!
Can you tell your grownup what things we can do at the seaside?
We also talked about how to stay safe in the sun. We learned that the sun is good for a lot of things but can also be bad for us if we get too much and don't protect ourselves.
We made a pair of sunglasses from cardboard and coloured cellophane. We wore them and noticed they made everything look coloured!
In English we created a booklet all about things we could do at the seaside. The children drew pictures and wrote sentences to go with them.
We loved watching the Year 6 leavers play this week. It was called Cinderella Rockerfella and it was fantastic! Well done Ravens - incredible performance!
In maths we made maps of a treasure island and talked through a route using sequential language and directional skills. We also programmed the Beebots to move along a route.
Our Monster Phonics this week, we have been practising reading and writing ccvcc words with previously taught digraphs. We also learned 3 new tricky words: Mr, Mrs, don't. We also read the story Goldilocks and the Three Bears, to practise this skill. Please continue to read with your child regularly. It really makes a difference to their confidence and fluency. Please also continue to use spelling shed. Again, this really helps the children to develop confidence and fluency with their segmenting and spelling skills.
Have a lovely weekend!
