Week Beginning 21st May 2018

Week starting: 21/05/2018


We follow Cornerstones curriculum content to follow a project each term. Our context for Learning this term is called 'Who lives in a rock pool?'


Which creatures live on the seashore? Why do crabs have shells? The children will get to explore these questions and more in thus project about the seashore and the plants and animals that live there.

For example; 

  • seashore plants and animals
  • pollution
  • features of the seashore
  • water safety
  • properties of natural materials
  • art using found materials


This week we will continue to base our activities and tasks on the Welsh book Tedi Twt Ar Lan Y Mor.  

 The children will get to make a book in the writing area about items they like on the beach, writing the sentence: Dw in hoffi.....bwced (bucket) for example.

IN the creative area there will be under the sea play dough mats and materials for the children to make their own flags and kites.  

Within our role play, we will change the theme this week to include items you would find at the beach or when you go swimming to fit with the book and topic.

In Our Maths area, there will be lots of opportunities with weighing and making a continuing pattern of shells and pebbles or beach items. We will also have a fishing game where the children are encouraged to match numbers. 

In our outdoor area, as well as our huge sand pit area to explore and make sculptures, there will be brilliant beach games, building boats in the construction and a Welsh item game using flashcards and the parachute! 

On Tuesday will be our main 'Beach Day' and we are excited to have an ice cream van visiting the school. Therefore, if you would like your child to purchase an ice cream or lolly, they will be available for £1.  



Our daily carpet sessions will include; Phonics, Literacy, CLIC (Maths) and Welsh. During the week the children will also have opportunities to participate in Music, I.T, Cookery, Gardening, PE and Library sessions. Once a week we run a carousel whereby the children all engage with Guided Group Reading and also experience other activities including Dough Disco and Digit Dancing, a variety of activities to develop their fine and gross motor skills, story time and Write Dance.


On Fridays, we are happy that Miss Peate has started Forest School and the children will rotate so they get the experience.
