This project teaches children about the plants and animals that live at the seaside. It also explores holidays in the past and the importance of keeping safe in the Sun.




Help your child prepare for their project

Visit the beach or look at photographs of days out at the beach. Talk

about the activities you enjoy when you visit the beach. Think about the things you need to take so that you can have fun and keep safe.

Use Google Earth to look at the seas and oceans around the world. Look at the map and colour the seas and oceans blue and then find the UK. 

The oceans contain some of the largest animals on the planet. Use a tablet or computer to take a look at these amazing animals.

blue whale, ocean sunfish, whale shark, giant Pacific octopus, giant squid, manta ray, coconut crab, and great white shark.

It is World Ocean Day on 8th June. Find out why it is so important to look after our oceans and the plants and animals that live there. Write three things that we can all do to look after the plants and animals that live in the oceans and our local area.

Make an under the sea picture. Think carefully about the animals and plants you will add. You can create your artwork using a computer paint programme, paint, drawing or collage materials.

How is this different from other seasons?  




Home learning


  • The children are expected to read at home at least four times a week. Please remember to write in your child’s reading planner if you listen to your child read, as they are rewarded in school for reading at home. Children are encouraged to develop their love of reading by using books, magazines and reading resources from home during the weekend. Remember to talk to your child about the text and ask lots of questions. 
  •  It is important to follow the RWI phonics scheme at home, where possible, when writing with your child. Please see the attachments below on how we teach letter formation and the rhymes we use to help the children. 


Our routines and reminders:


  • Our PE session will be every MONDAY in F2 and TUESDAY in F1 
  • Your child can come to school wearing their school PE kit. Please make sure it is suitable for our outdoor PE sessions and is labelled with their name. 


  • Please remember to return your Childs book bag everyday. 


  • Please send your child with their water bottle every day labelled with their name. 


  • Can you please send your child to school with a spare change of clothes, pants, socks, trousers/skirt as accidents occur and it’s helpful if your child has their own clothes to change into. Please leave them in a bag on their peg and please make sure all items are labelled.


  • Can you please send a pair of wellies for your child to keep at school, to use in our mud kitchen and digging area. REMEMBER to put their name in them!!


  • You can send pictures through class Do Jo, to share your child’s achievements from home. These contribute to your child’s assessment and are a vital part of the progress your child will make. This is an opportunity for us to hear about and celebrate your child’s home achievements.



Thank you for entrusting your child to us this year. We promise to do our best each day to guide your child in exploring and learning, as well as helping them to feel safe and valued.


Thank you for your continued support. If you have any questions please see one of the foundation team or send a message through our class Do Jo page, we are always here to help and support you.
