We continued with our story of the week ‘Goldilocks’ on the beach this week. We know the story so well that we were able to tell it ourselves. We did a great job of putting on different voices for the different bears.
We had a go at writing some words from the story in the sand and drawing some squiggle and pen disco patterns.
For maths today we filled some Numicon with shells, counting carefully. The Reception children then used the Numicon and shells to show one more and one less.
We took the bears from our ‘Three Bear’s Cottage’ to the beach today and made them some porridge using sand, stones and shells. We mixed in saucepans and put it into bowls. We gave them all a delicious meal of sand porridge! We then made them beds in the sand.
One of Starfish class found a really interesting piece of painted wood. We were all fascinated by it and wondered where it came from. These are some of our ideas:
‘It’s from a door from a house in the dunes’
‘It’s from a pirate ship, the underbit because it’s wet’
‘It might have come from a fishing boat’
‘It’s from a big Jolly Roger pirate ship. From the tall bit where the sail goes’
We finished our morning at beach school by reciting the poem we have been learning this week ‘Sliced Bread’.
