Our topic for this term is Sea and Shore. We have lots of exciting activities and experiences planned to bring this topic to life. These include a visit to the seaside, a seaside themed day and a puppet workshop.
We will be starting the topic by comparing seaside localities with Crowle and finding out what makes a seaside a seaside. If you visit the seaside with your child this term please spend a few minutes to point out key features e.g. harbour, pier, beach etc.
Through our history work we will be finding out about how visits to the seaside have changed over time.
Our DT work will round off the seaside's from the past work by looking at Punch and Judy puppet shows. We will be designing and making our own puppets and enjoying a puppet workshop.
In art we will be exploring seascapes and creating our own using a wide range of media. We will also be looking at drawing and different printing techniques.
Our science work will focus on the plants and animals that are found at the seaside and we will be finding out about the animals that live in shells.
In our dance lessons we will be choreographing and performing our own dances based on the sea and sea creatures.
What an exciting term ahead, please remember that if you visit any seaside places and collect any interesting items we would love you to share them with us. We are going to have a class interest display.
