When we first got to the beach this morning we spent a bit of time watching some surfers on the big waves.
We continued with our story of the week ‘Hansel and Gretel’ on the beach this week. We helped tell the story to each other and made up some actions to help us with the story.
Mrs Cotton gave us all a slice of bread and we went for a walk in the dunes. We broke off pieces of the bread and dropped it on our journey just like Hansel did when he and Gretel went into the forest. We also saw Seals under the parachute when we were up there! When we got to the bottom we watched the seagulls swoop down and eat our bread.
Everyone worked together to make a gingerbread house in the sand. We collected shells, stones, grasses, feathers and seaweed. We were very pleased with it when we had finished.
For our maths today we used the gingerbread men cutters. The nursery children made some gingerbread men and counted them and the reception children made some gingerbread men addition number sentences.
On our way back to school we made maps. We decided that if Hansel and Gretel had made a map they might not have ended up in the witch’s house. We were all very excited to see a heron on our way back too!
When were almost back at school we all noticed some snowdrops growing and we remembered that in our story a few weeks ago, Jack Frost, snowdrops tell us that spring is nearly here. We all decided that we will look for more snowdrops when we are out.
