OCEAN STORIES AND FANTASTIC FACTS

15.6.20 - Story time!

Head over to the Video resource centre to listen to Ms Bhattacharjee, Mrs O'Regan and Miss Catton reading you a story!  There are two new stories to go with our 'Land Ahoy' topic - Commotion in the Ocean, Lost and Found and Octopus's Garden.  The African Animal stories are still there too.

Under the Sea   

What is happening in the picture?

What sea creatures can you see?

Who is the girl and what is she doing?

 

Write all the verbs you can see - 

swimming, diving...

Now write them in a sentence.

 

Create a story map for the picture. What will happen next?

 

The Jumblies

The Jumblies is a poem by Edward Lear about made up creatures, with green bodies and blue hair, that go on an adventure across the sea in only a sieve. 

Listen to the poem and enjoy the silly story told. Can you spot any rhyming words? Do you notice the rhthym?

The Snail and the Whale

This is a lovely story by Julia Donaldson.  It's the perfect thing to watch on a rainy afternoon, which we seem to be having a few of at the moment!  Curl up and enjoy the journey that these special friends make in to the deep blue sea.

15.6.20 - Sharks

Meet Bruce and Bob the sharks!  Here are some questions to help you think about them...

  • How old are Bruce and Bob?
  • What are their personalities like?
  • Do they always swim around the ocean together?
  • How did they meet? 
  • Are they friends or enemies?
  • How did they get the scars on their faces?

Can you write a story about Bob and Bruce's adventures?

'Land Ahoy!' Challenges

This half-term, we will be learning about animals that live under the sea, such as penguins, sharks, octopuses, and many more!

Here are a few ideas for you to try at home:

  • Read stories about sea creatures using your own books or online books. (Oxford Owl is great for this!)
  • Do you know a story about a sea creature? Listen to one of the stories your teacher told you and create a story map to help you retell the story.
  • Do you have a favourite sea creature?  Make a poster to describe it.  Use great adjectives to describe your animal.
poisonous
stripey
dangerous
massive

Something Fishy!
