Class 3 – Caterpillars 2014-15

Caterpillars Class Blog 26.6.15

This week we have been thinking about beaches in own our country. Some children have visited the beach as part of their home learning and have been bringing in shells, stones etc they have found washed up on the shore.

Our literacy work has been based on a book about a little boy who finds an underwater camera washed up on the beach. ‘Flotsam ‘ by David Wiesner is a wordless picture book which we have really enjoyed.

Louie – ‘The boy was looking at a hermit crab through a magnifying glass.’

Poppy – ‘He found a camera washed up on the beach.’

Max – ‘I liked the picture of the squid sitting on the sofa reading a book.’

Oliver Mc – ‘The starfishes had islands on their backs.’

In Maths we have also had a beach focus and we have been setting up beach shop scenarios where we could buy beach items and give change.

Other fun we have had in class this week involved making ice-creams (not real though!) and creating beach scenes using a paper plate. We have also begun painting our canvases ready for the Summer Fair on the 10th July.

Next week we are really excited about moving to our new classes, going to the Royal Norfolk Show and Sports Day.
