Nursery have been learning about the animals that live under the sea.
We enjoyed observing a real fish and learning about the different parts of a fish. Why does the fish have a tail? How does it use its fins? How does a fish breathe?
The children created a giant fish by cutting out shiny scales.
We found out about clown fish and we know that they live in sea anemones because they don’t sting them. They weave between the anemones and clean them. The children made their own anemone and clown fish model.
We know that the sea and ocean are large areas of water and that the edge of the sea is usually made of sand. We call it the beach. Look at our beach art. We created the waves using our fingers in the paint. Then we added sand to create the beach. We exercised our fingers by weaving a giant sea through a net for our role play area.
In maths the children discovered which was nursery’s favourite sea creature by making a pictograph.
We wanted to know why sea turtles sometimes come onto the beach and we found out that they lay their eggs in a nest buried under the sand. Ask us about the sea turtle life cycle.
Here are some photographs of all our work so far. Next week we will be looking at shells.
