The Seaside Topic
During the Summer Term the children learn about the human and physical features by the seaside. They also create different pieces of artwork based on these features. The children draw pictures of lighthouses and create clay seashells.
The children also learn about the main similarities and differences between visiting the seaside in the past and present.
In English the children read a variety of texts linked to the seaside topic. We read the books as a class and children make links to these reading books when they carry out their postcard and diary entry writing.
In science the children also go on a summer walk, they use their senses to explore the surrounding natural environment.
