Our book at the beach today was ‘Colour Monster’ by Anna Llenas. After the listening to the story and talking about our feelings we wrote a list of the different colours of the Colour Monster.
At the end of the story the little girl helps the colour monster to sort the colours into jars. We went on a colour hunt along the beach and in the sand dunes collecting different colours and putting them in our own special jars.
For our PE on the beach today we practised throwing bean bags into hoops. We tried to throw the same coloured bean bag into the same coloured hoop.
We then looked at the sky and around the beach using different coloured viewers. We found out that if we put the blue and yellow one together it looked green and when we put the red and yellow together everything looked orange.
For our maths on the beach we used shells and stones to make patterns. Some of us used different sizes for our patterns, some of used different colours and some used different types of stones and shells. After lunch at the golf club we headed back to school.
In pairs, we created our own yoga sequences using the knowledge and skills we have gained throughout this term. Working collaboratively, we carefully selected and combined poses that felt right for our sequences. We then had the opportunity to teach our sequences to other classmates, explaining our choices and the purpose behind each pose. It was amazing to see how everyone's creativity and understanding of yoga shone through!
Skeletons in the Sand
Next, we spent time learning the human skeleton by cutting out the different parts to make our own diagram and then labelling the key bones in the skeleton. To make it even more fun, we practiced the skeleton song, adding a musical touch to our learning experience.
We challenged ourselves with number lines, aiming to improve our skills in this area. It was something we found a bit tricky this week, but with determination and perseverance, we tackled the challenge head-on.
Gumboot Dance and Sequencing
To keep our energy levels high, we took a break from academic tasks and indulged in some rhythmic fun. We practiced our gumboot dance, synchronizing our movements and working on adding more sequences into the routine. Through this activity, we honed our team-building skills, problem-solving abilities, and perseverance, all while having a blast!
