We have had a very busy day down at the beach! We started the day off with Worship where we tied knots in the marram grass to represent each thing that we are grateful for.
We then headed off to start our English lesson, we began to write some lovely pieces of description to describe the area around us.
In maths we took the scales down to the beach. We worked towards finding various objects on the beach that were equal in weight, this was trickier than we thought! We also had a go at making our own scales from natural resources we had found on the beach.
Our PE lesson involved athletics, we practised our running, jumping and throwing skills. It was tough running on the soft sand.
After lunch we began to learn about food chains. We worked in small groups to show our understanding of where different food chains start by ordering some picture cards.
We then took a moment to look at the beautiful coastline and began to sketch a drawing of Dunstanburgh Castle and the surrounding area. I was very impressed with how they looked!
At the end of the day we walked back via school. We were shocked at how much school has changed, the builders have been very busy. We can’t wait to see the school as it gets closer to being ready.
We started beach school today with Worship by the Waves. Our worship theme this week is Thankfulness. We all found a piece of green marram grass and tied lots of knots in it. Each knot was for something we were thankful for. We said a thank you prayer and sang ‘Thank you Lord for this fine day’.
Our story this week is ‘Around the World with Max and Lemon’. In the story Max travels around the world and meets lots of different children who are all unique.
Max meets Anka who lived in the mountains and liked to weave colourful patterns. We found some different coloured marram grass and weaved it into some wool.
In the desert max meets Noor who loves music and likes to play an instrument. We made shaker musical instruments using pipe cleaners and shells with holes. We sang songs and shook our shakers.
Max meets Pakaya in the jungle. Pakaya like to listen to tales sung by his dad. We sang a story about a Princess who lived long ago.
In the arctic Max met Gertrude who loves to whizz down hills on a sledge. We didn’t have a sledge so we slid down the sand dunes instead.
In the story Max saw lots of different animals so we thought about animals that live in the sea that we might be able to see. We used our sketch books to draw some of the them, thinking carefully about what they looked like.
We then headed back for lunch before heading back to school to finish our learning for the day.
