Well we ticked off two of our 50 things before we had even arrived at the beach.
We travelled on a coach.
We travelled on a train.
We arrived at the beach eager to eat our packed lunches.
Then it was time to have some fun on the beach. We made sand sculptures, went beach combing, made sand castles and played bat and ball.
Then just before it was time to leave, we went for a paddle.
We had a brilliant day, and the weather was very kind to us.
On our travels we met some pirates, but they were very busy developing their pirate skills.
Here they are working on their balancing skills.
‘Walking the plank me hearties!’
Here they are working as a team, and developing their aiming skills.
‘Battleships me hearties!’
Here they are working on their catching skills.
‘Cannonballs me hearties!’
Here they are developing their observational skills.
‘Finding an island me hearties!’
Here they are developing their map reading skills.
‘Treasure hunt me hearties!’
Here they are developing their sharing skills.
‘Sharing the booty me hearties!’
They had a great time at pirate training school.
Your child has learnt this little song to say Happy Father’s Day.
Hope you wear your tie with pride. Happy Father’s Day!
Well we had read the story, wrote about it, and drew pictures of the animals from it. It was now time for the best bit! It was time to sample the fruits from the book ‘Handa’s Surprise’. The children were really excited to try some of the fruits, but obviously not others.
There were some interesting faces, as children stepped out of their comfort zone, and tried some fruits which were new to them.
The children then recorded which fruits they liked and disliked. We found that three children liked six of the seven fruits available.
Well, the weather wasn’t great yesterday, so we used our time wisely!
We went and ticked off another one of our ’50 things to do before we leave Greenlands’.
Here we are playing in the rain.
