Welcome back to school after the Christmas holidays! Happy new year! Our new topic for this half term is' Pirates!'.
Please follow the link to the topic plan and half term letter:
We have been looking at lots of different maps to learn more about where we are in the world. We have found the UK on maps and Google Earth. We have been learning the names of the countries that make up the UK and have used a skipping song to help us!
We have been learning about what sailors do all day on boats and why they travelled the world with the dangers of sinking or being attacked by pirates. The children set sail in the outside area and cleaned the ship, cooked food, climbed the rigging to fix sails, went on look out duty and many other tasks as their boat sailed to trade with other lands.
We learnt about how pirates would attack other ships using five different steps. We acted this out with our friends and stole the treasure!
We have been using Beebots to travel around treasure maps. We learnt how to give the Beebots instructions to move in the direction that we wanted to be able to find the missing treasure.
