Nursery: Outing to the Beach

We began our topic by exploring the story ‘Mr Gumpy’s Outing' by John Burningham. 

The children built their own boat and set sail, acting out the antics of the characters from the story. Their favourite part was when they tipped the boat over and got wet! They then experienced two outings: a picnic and a trip to the seaside, setting up a beach café role play area and selling pretend and real ice creams. To compliment the warm weather on Friday, we turned on a water shower and we all got extremely wet!  

Oh we do like to be beside the seaside. Oh we do like to be beside the sea….
