Transport – on/under the sea

We hope you had a lovely weekend!

This week we are thinking about transport that you might use on/in the sea. This story is just one story for this week.


Task 1: Read ‘Mr Gumpy’s Outing’

This story introduces transport that travels on the water, boats. Have fun with the story, Do the animals listen? Would they have fell in the water if they had listened? Were they angry with each other? Did the story end happy/sad? What do they do at the end?

Task 2: Creative/Science – Using the story for this week I would like you to make a boat! Use something plastic if you can, something from your recycling would be great. You then need to use your plastic toy animals/people.

  • How many toys can you fit inside your boat? Keep putting toys in your boat until it falls in the water, how many toys made your boat fall in the water?
  • Are your animals big/small? How many big things/small things can you fit in your boat? 
  • How heavy are your toys? What happens when you put heavy things into your boat?


Task 1: Maths – Counting and addition. Warm up by counting to 20! Play this game, underwater counting.

  • Triangles – Complete this Mr Gumpy’s Outing counting sheet. You can print the sheet if you like, if not you can write the total on paper/cards or use magnetic numbers. A-Special-Outing-Counting 1
