In literacy, we read the rainbow fish and sharing a shell. We spoke about how the fish felt when the rainbow fish wouldn’t share his scales. We were then given a scale each and we wrote down what makes a good friend. We sequenced the stories and wrote about the different scenes.
In phonics, we continued to read and write words containing adjacent consonants. We played beat the timer where we took turns to read the words on the board before the timer ran out. We also played what’s in the box and sentence substitution.
In Maths, we looked at one more than and one less than and subtraction. We estimated how many sea creatures were in our pots and counted to check. We also looked at measuring and comparing objects of different lengths.
In topic, we named as many sea creatures as we could in 30 seconds. We then watched a video and wrote down as many of the creatures as we could in three minutes. We learned facts about jelly fish. We listened to different types of music and spoke about which sea creatures the music reminded us of. We then moved around the classroom imitating different sea creatures. We also looked at rock pools, we spoke about the different sea creatures that we think might live in rock pools and we watched a video to check to see if we were right and we learned some new and interesting facts.
We celebrated World Music Day. We listened to songs from around the world and watched traditional dances and joined in.
We celebrated Windrush day. We read the poem ‘Windrush child’ and we all acted out the poem.
This is what we did during our continuous provision:
We used different materials to make a variety of sea creatures such as fish, jelly fish, sharks, sea turtles, crabs and sea horses. We also made mermaids and mini aquariums.
The shark ate some fish and we worked out how many were left and wrote down the subtraction number sentence. We used play dough and dice and to solve the subtraction problems. We played bowling and then wrote down how many pins were left. We explored our own number problems using numicon and shells. We also investigated capacity.
We wrote about different sea creatures, we wrote down facts about turtles, we wrote about jelly fish and other fish.
We weaved fish and jelly fish, we solved the addition problems and added that number of spots to the tentacles, we made an octopus using paper chains and we made creatures using play dough.
We made repeating patterns using fish, we circled the rhyming words, we played the shopping game, we ordered numbered fish, we sorted objects that started with b and d, we made 3D shapes using polydrons and we practised our number formation. We also made musical shakers and other instruments to celebrate ‘World Music Day’.
Phonics reading and writing:
We read sentences about the sea, we played under the sea roll and read, we read key words on fish bowls, we wrote key words, we played bingo and we wrote words on our sea themed phoneme frames.
