Starfish
 

We continued our Santa dinosaur theme at the beach today with the book ‘Santasaurus’ by Niamh Sharkey.  After we listened to the story we wrote a Christmas list just like the dinosaurs in both our stories did.  We thought carefully about the letters in the words.

After our writing we made Dinosaur Town using sandcastles for houses and seaweed for roads.  We had great fun playing with the dinosaurs in the town we had created.

We then pretended to be Santasaurus by wearing a Santa hat and ringing jingle bells!  We went for a walk along the beach and in the sand dunes to deliver presents.  We even tried to sing Jingle Bells by the sea.

We finished the morning by doing some counting.  We used cookie cutters in the sand to make our dinosaurs Christmas cookies.  We then wrote the number in the sand next to the cookies.
