This week we have started our new topic about the island of St Lucia.

We learnt that an island is surround by the sea and investigated what and how the sea is different to that of the sea around our country, which is also an island!

We looked at photos on the Internet and Google Earth and in information books. We also found a story called ‘my grandpa and the sea’ which was set on the island of St Lucia.

After collecting all this information, we set about creating a Caribbean seascape to go in our role-play area.

We layered on many shades of blue using paint and sprinkled on sliver glitter to make it shimmer. We then added detail with the chalks and pastels to give the effect of a beautiful Caribbean Sea.
