Creating a rockpool

 

 

 

 

 

Can you find a large piece of card or paper. (You could stick some pieces together). Start adding some colour with paint, crayons or collage. You could scrunch up paper to be the rocks at the sides of the pool. Shiny foil could make a good collage material for the water. Think of the colours and textures you might need.

 

  

 

Or you could gather materials, including natural materials to make your rockpool. For example, stones, sand, dirt even real shells if you have any.

 

   

  

Puppet retelling of ‘Sharing a shell’

 

Draw  or paint pictures of the main characters. When you have finished you need to cut them out and stick them on to sticks, pencils, rulers or strong card with tape or glue.

 

 

 

 

You can use your rockpool that you have made as your scenery and stage to retell the story.

You could always make up a new story, just make some new characters. Or pretend that something else happens. Who could come to the rockpool? A dangerous seagull? Some boys or girls collecting crabs in a bucket!? You choose and use your imagination.

 

Down under the sea (To the tune of ‘Down in the jungle’)

 

 

Down under the sea where nobody goes there’s a happy,  red crab washing his clothes with a scrub-a-dub here and a scrub-a-dub there that’s the way he washes his clothes. With a splish, splash and a boogie woogie, woogie. Splish, splash and a boogie, woogie, woogie. That’s the way he washes his clothes.

 

 

 

Down under the sea where nobody goes there’s a grumpy, blue fish washing his clothes with a scrub-a-dub here and a scrub-a-dub there that’s the way he washes his clothes. With a splish, splash and a boogie woogie, woogie. Splish, splash and a boogie, woogie, woogie. That’s the way he washes his clothes.

 

 

 

 

Down under the sea where nobody goes there’s a sad, orange octopus washing his clothes with a scrub-a-dub here and a scrub-a-dub there that’s the way he washes his clothes. With a splish, splash and a boogie woogie, woogie. Splish, splash and a boogie, woogie, woogie. That’s the way he washes his clothes.

 

 

 

You can add more verses by choosing a colour, an underwater animal and an emotion - how is the animal feeling? Don’t forget the actions!
