Dear All,

We have been having such fun with our under the sea theme. Last week we found out about rockpools and hermit crabs. We did a lot of investigating with shells and rocks and used them in our maths activities for counting and making shapes and exploring patterns.

We have really enjoyed making a rockpool in a bottle. Choosing what to go in and filling it to the half way mark. If we listen carefully they even sound like the sea.

We have also been very busy in the warmer weather doing our outdoor activities. We made some beautiful nature crafts and we love our clay tree faces.
