Welcome to Class One and Class Two!
Our Curriculum Project for Summer 2019
Pack up some sandwiches, pick up a fishing net and keep your eyes peeled because we’re off to the coast to go beachcombing!
This term, we’ll visit a beach to experience the sights, sounds and smells of the seashore and find living and non-living things. Bringing shells, pebbles and seaweed back to the classroom will help us to learn about a wide range of coastal plants and creatures. We’ll read a range of seaside stories and use the coast as a setting for our writing. Maps and film footage will help us to find out more about the coast and we’ll create a wide variety of artwork. We’ll use books and the internet to search for information about the seashore and use our knowledge to write our own non-fiction books.
At the end of the project, we’ll decide how we should look after the coastal environment and how the beach can be kept clean. We’ll use our ICT skills to create a final poster which will include photographs, captions and sound files.
