Teamwork - Respect - Aim High

Summer 2 week 3 15.06.20 - 19.06.20

Do you know this Julia Donaldson's Under the sea story?  


Find it in your book collection at home or enjoy the YouTube video. Ask the adult to pause the story when the Crab, Blob and Brush argue about the shell.


Look at their faces and have a think: what are they going to do? What would you tell them? Should the crab say ‘I was here first’?

Finish the story and discuss the idea of sharing with your grown-up.

Do you share?

Is it nice to share?

Why is it important?

How does it feel when others don’t want to share with you?

Sharing a Shell by Julia Donaldson

Write a letter from the Crab to his friends.

Dear Blob and Brush,

I am sorry that …. 



We hope you enjoy this story! Look out for lots of rhyming words; can you include some in your letter?
