Our story at the beach today was ‘Wow! Said the Owl’ by Tim Hopgood. It was about an owl that stayed awake all day and was amazed by all the beautiful colours he could see. We thought about what the owl might see and say if he came to beach school.
“Wow! Said the owl when he saw the blue sea.”
“Wow! Said the owl when he saw the green marram grass.”
“Wow! Said the owl when he saw the peach sand.”
We then wrote our ideas on our clipboards. After doing our writing we then had a go at drawing an owl in the sand. Some of us used seaweed for wings and shells for eyes.
We decided that we would go for a walk along the beach to see what had happened to the dunes after last week when the tide was really high. We sat and watched the water run into the sea. After watching the water running into the sea we decided that we wanted to do some running! We had some running races back up to the beach where our bags were. As the weather is getting a bit cooler now we had some warm juice with our snack – we all really liked it!
It was great fun using the beanbags today, throwing and catching them. We then decided to run up the sand dunes, throw the beanbags down and run down the dunes to retrieve them. It was such fun!
For our maths today we continued with our pairs of numbers to ten. We used tens frames and put shells and stones on them. We then said what we had made:
“Eight shells and two stones is ten altogether”
“Five stones and five shells makes ten “
Before we went back to school we sat and watched the waves. We saw a fishing boat and we all waved. We were really pleased when the fishermen on the boat waved back!
