After worship we looked at our book of the week ‘Life Sized Animal Tracks’ by John Townsend. We each had some animal prints to label and tried really hard with our writing. After writing we went for a walk to see what tracks and footprints we might see in the sand. We saw lots of people and dog footprints but only a few bird footprints. We followed a set of dog footprints that went round and round and round! There were lots of different dog footprints so we looked for the biggest and the smallest we could find and discussed the direction the dogs had gone in.
We also walked down to the edge of the water to watch the waves. We made footprints then walked backwards and we watched the waves wash our footprints away. We investigated the difference in our footprints when we walked and when we ran. We noticed that when we ran our footprints were deeper. All our wellies made different footprints too. It was fun to take our wellies and socks of and make footprints with our feet. We experimented with walking on the different types of sand to see which made the best footprints.
In our book of the week there are lots of different animal footprints. We went up in to the dunes to play and game where we matched pictures of animal footprints to a picture of the animal that made the footprint. We were very good!
This week at lunchtime Mandy brought us some fish fingers from school we had chips from the golf club! They were very tasty!
