Half Term Project Details and Homework Ideas – Beachcombers

 

Oh, I do like to be beside the seaside. Do you? That’s good, because you’re about to become an expert beachcomber. Head to your nearest beach to look for interesting and unusual objects, using your senses to spot, sniff and seek them out. Have you seen the rock pools yet? We can take a peek into the cool water to learn about the weird and wonderful animals and plants in their microhabitats. Maybe we can kick back in a deckchair and do a little reading. What’s your favourite book about the seashore? Let's invent an amazing rock pool resident. What features will it need to survive happily in its watery habitat? Make a 3-D model of your plant or creature. Got your shorts and sunglasses on? Bucket and spade at the ready? Let’s get beachcombing.

 

This project runs for the second of the Summer term. Homework contributions can be made throughout the half term, please make sure your child brings in something that they have worked on at home. 

 

Below are some ideas for each project, try one of these or something else project related.

  • Bring pictures from home of yourself or family members at the seaside or swimming in the sea.  

  • Identify the different locations on a UK or world map. 

  • Visit your local library to browse or borrow story and information books about the seaside. 

  • With an adult, use the web to research famous artists who use the beach for inspiration. 

  • Make a miniature seashore garden, using natural materials such as pebbles, twigs, sand and shells. 

  • Make a list of all the activities you could do at the seashore. Survey your friends and family to identify the ‘Top Five Shore Activities’ and show the results in a pictogram or bar chart. 

  • Create a collage of a seaside scene using magazine pages 

  • Share with your family the tongue twisters and riddles you have learnt. Can you write some more of your own? 

  • Write a poem about the living things that make their home in a rock pool. An acrostic or shape poem would be fun! 

  • Design, draw, and paint a picture of a beach hut. Bring it into class and display everyone’s beach huts next to each other.  

At the end of the project homework period your child will receive either a bronze, silver or gold project homework badge.

Bronze = a basic piece of project homework was completed

Silver = a good piece of project homework which has clearly taken lots of time to complete

Gold = an excellent piece of project homework which has clearly taken lots of thought, time and effort to complete
