Room 2 have been learning all about the seaside over the past fortnight. They have been reading about, painting and acting out the wonderful story of The Rainbow Fish and have been discussing all the ways they share with and care for their friends. They have also been figuring out ways they can care for the local environment, the beach and their two class fish Loveheart and Sophie. They made their own brilliant sea creatures during their Aistear stations using junk art materials and giant blocks, and created wonderful octopuses (octopi!) with two, three, and even some four step patterns in Maths this week! The Room 2 Historians have also been exploring beaches from the past, looking at what people wore and did a long time ago at the seaside, and learnt some seaside songs, as well as some rhymes and the tongue twister ‘Sally Sells’. Room 2 are great at it, why don’t you give it a go?
Sally Sells Sea Shells,
By the Seashore,
The sea shells that she sells,
Are from the sea I’m sure!
