There’s an exciting world just below the surface of the rock pool. Which creatures live near the sea? Why do crabs have shells? We’ll find out the answers to these questions and more in this project about the seashore.
This half term, we’ll use our imagination to travel to the coast to visit the fascinating world of the British seashore. We’ll explore rock pools and collect ‘treasures’. We’ll use our senses to investigate man-made and natural seashore objects, including litter and pollution.
We’ll listen carefully to stories and poems about the seashore. By reading non-fiction books, we’ll find out lots of interesting facts, discovering which animals live in a rock pool and what they eat.
Using our mathematical skills, we’ll count jellyfish, solve problems and order shells. We’ll also measure handprints and footprints in the sand.
Using our art skills, we’ll make sculptures, create beach art
and decorate shells and pebbles. It might get messy when we explore the texture of sand and create a fantastic sand art display!
