Learning Theme – Under the sea

This week we will continue with our Under the Sea learning theme. The children have been busy transforming our classes into the underwater paradise we all imagined! They have all learnt many facts about all the amazing creatures that live below the sea. Leading up to our visit to the aquarium we will talk in more depths about sea creatures, their different features and movements. How do they breathe underwater? Where do they live in the sea? Are all sea creatures the same? What makes them different? During our Education visit we would like the children to create their own drawings of fish, observing their features and looking closely at the colours.

Key Vocabulary: Fish, creatures, aquarium, sea life, underwater.

Expressive Arts and Design

What makes a fish look like a fish? Children will practise creating their own representational drawings of sea creatures on the run up to the school trip. We want to see the children paying particular attention to the features that make up a fish, thinking about the shape they need to make and what colours they should use.

Key Vocabulary:  Features, shapes, drawing, observational drawings.

Mathematics

We will be looking at our numbers this week, writing numbers and representing amounts using objects, claps and other body movements to 10 and beyond. Can you clap to 10? How many stamps did I make? Can you show me 5 fingers?

Vocabulary: numbers 1-20, amount.

Mandarin

We are going to keep talking about Under the Sea . We will do some activities related to the theme.

Key words: coral(shan hu)珊瑚       jellyfish(shui mu) 水母     octopus (zhang yu )章鱼    sealion(hai shi)海狮    clown fish(xiao chou yu)  小丑鱼  

1.Decorate a picture:  Make an Under the Sea picture using different shape
