1, 2, 3, 4, 5, Once I caught a fish alive


1, 2, 3, 4, 5,                         

Once I caught a fish alive.                        6, 7, 8, 9, 10,                      

Then I let it go again.

Why did you let it go?

Because it bit my finger so.

Which finger did It bite?

This little finger, on my right.



     Bubble painting 


Mix your paint with a little water, and a squirt of washing-up liquid, stir it up and then blow into it with a straw to create lots and lots of bubbles. You then gently place the paper over the bubbles to take a print from them, remove, and allow to dry.

This is the basic technique, but you can vary it. For example, you can use a large tray of bubbles to cover the whole sheet. Alternatively you can use several small pots of different coloured bubbles, as in the example above, and print them one at a time on the same page, (or cluster them together and do them all at once) to create multi-colour bubble circles.  Another variation is to try layering one colour print with another using bubbles of a different colour.

Once the paper is dry you can use it to make sea animals like fish and jelly fish.

Have a go at singing the song and don’t forget some actions!

The sharks came a hunting!              


Materials needed:

· Toilet paper tubes (one for each shark)  

· Gray paint

· Paintbrushes

· Glue or tape




First, cut out the “mouth” section by cutting a triangle into one end of the toilet paper tube. You can see them in the picture above. Save the leftover triangle pieces for the fin and the tail. You’ll need to let the paint dry for an hour or two on all the pieces. Meanwhile, cut some teeth out of plain white paper, and make some eyes..

Next, it’s time to put it together. You’ll need glue or tape for the eyes, fins and tail. You can use a black pen to draw the gills.

                                                                   Alternatively, you can make a fish:
