Our topic this term is ‘who lives in a rock pool’ which looks at the beach and rock pools to see how they are made and what animals we can find in them.
Talk with your child about what animals you can find in rock pools and then, together, decide which one they would like to research. Put together a piece of work focusing on the facts they have learnt about this animal. What do they eat? How do they move? Etc. You can put these facts together however you like. It could be a list, a poster even a model!
Drawings and pictures of the animal are encouraged and don’t be afraid to go with your child’s interest if they then find themselves interested in another animal or another aspect of beaches and rock pools. For example a lot of the children have been very interested about fossils that you would find on the beach.
