We were pleased that the rain had eased off today. It was still a little drizzly but we were looking forward to getting on the beach. We began the morning with our church school council leading Worship by the Waves. They told us about Trinity Sunday and we took part in a prayer activity by drawing triangles in the sand.
We started our maths by playing ‘What’s the time Mr Wolf?’ we discovered that it was quite tricky for some of us to count our steps so we practised lots! Some of us practised counting in fives and made number lines with shells and stones and some of us discovered different ways of arranging 3,4,5 and 6 objects.
In PE we started with a pirate game where we had to listen to instructions and then do the action. It was really fun. After that we used bean bags and travelled in lots of different ways with them. After PE we noticed that there was a lot of foam in the sea so we spent some time watching it being washed up with the waves and being washed out again. We found out sea foam is formed when the ocean is tossed round by the wind and waves.
After our snack we listened to a pirate story and then looked inside a treasure chest. We chose items from the chest and then clapped the syllables in the words. When we had emptied the chest some children made a list of what was inside while the other children played an ‘I spy’ game using initial letter sounds and descriptive words.
