This week in Reception children have been learning about the seaside.  Children listened to a variety of stories based around the seaside.  These stories provided children with opportunities to explore our own rock pool, create lists for things we would take to the seaside with us and what it was like at the seaside a long time ago after sharing ‘When I was little like you’.  We have used shapes to create seaside pictures.
