We are all going on a summer holiday

Week 1

We have made start on our new topic for this final half term of the school year 'We 're all going on  a summer holiday.'

We have been busy making things to go in our new role play area, we are selling ice creams of all different types.

We have talked about the things we might do on a holiday at the seaside and swimming and sunbathing  are very popular.

Numbered sea shells 
To help us to recognise numbers this week, we looked at numbered sea shells and tried hard to put them in order,  We found number 1 to start and then continued, what comes next? 2,3,4,5,6,7,8,9,10...

Paper plate suns
Look at our paper plate suns.  We used scissors to snip strips of paper to represent the suns rays and then continued to use our fine motor skills to collage the centre of the plate in warm sun-like colours.

Our sandcastle art gave us the  chance to talk about beaches and use different collage materials to create a beautiful picture. We used coloured sand to decorate the sandcastles.

This week we have enjoyed the story 'Rainbow Fish,' so many of our activities have been  about fish.   We looked at different fish that live in the ocean and looked at other creatures that live in the sea.

Look at some of our fabulous hand-print fish pictures, they are lovely and colourful, just like some of the fish that live down at the bottom of the deep blue sea.

Outdoor play

We have had lots of fun outside this week. 

Some were being musical, playing the chime bars and singing,. Others were looking for pea pods  that are ready to be picked and enjoying the round juicy peas inside.  There was lots of climbing and jumping with some fabulous landings, as well as lots of imaginative play - on the  camp fires the boys were cooking burgers and toasting marshmallows.

We used tweezers to catch fish and put them in the net, this helps to develop a good grip so that we can hold pencils well and draw and write.  We also did some great  counting and found numbers to match the number of fish.

We talked about Jelly fish, where we find them and what they might do, be careful, they sting!

We used paper plates and decorated them to make our own jelly fish, adding long strips of crepe paper to make tentacles.

We listened to the story 'Sharing a shell' and made a rock pool picture.  First we cut out the 3 characters from the story, Crab, Blob  the anemone and Brush the bristleworm and stuck them in the pool. Then, we cut out the large shell and stuck it with sticky tape so that we could lift it up to see the 3 sharing a shell.
