We continued our Julia Donaldson topic at the beach with ‘The Snail and the Whale’.   In the story a tiny snail longs to see the world and hitches a lift on the tail of a whale. Together they go on an amazing journey, past icebergs and volcanoes, sharks and penguins, and the little snail feels so small in the vastness of the world. But when disaster strikes and the whale is beached in a bay, it's the tiny snail who saves the day.

 We wrote about how the snail felt on the long journey and drew a picture of the snail on the whale.

 For our maths we continued our learning from the classroom this week using the balances to weigh whales and snails.  We carefully counted how many spoonful's of sand it took to balance them. 

 We walked through the sand dunes to look for snails but only found four shells.    Sometimes we see lots and lots of snails but not today!  When we got back to the beach we made spiral snail shells in the sand and decorated them with shells.

 In PE we continued to practise our throwing and catching skills.  We also practised how to throw to hit a target.
