Orange Class

Welcome to the Summer Term! 

Our topic for this term is ...

'Making Waves!'

 

Picture 1

Have a look at what we're learning about this term!

Orange Class have been finding out about the seaside.

We read some seaside poems including 'Song of the Seaside' by Celia Warren

 

SONG OF THE SEASIDE

One for a bucket,
Two for a spade,
Three for the castle
    Grandpa made.

Four for a deckchair,
Five for a towel,
Six for the crab
    that made me howl.

Seven for the sunshine,
Eight for the sky,
Nine for the kite
    we like to fly.

 

We visited the 'beach' at Willington Garden Centre for inspiration. 

We wrote our own versions of the poem. 

See our photos below!
