This term, our topic is called Land Ahoy! We will be using the topic to explore the world in this geography lead topic. We will identify and name the oceans and seas of the world and find out boats in science. We will also be using this topic to investigate and research famous pirates from the past who sailed the seven seas and consider weather we would choose to be part of a pirate's crew or, if in fact their life choices may not have always been the best!
On our WOW days the children explored the life of a pirate and researched famous pirates from the past! They collated range of really interesting facts! Maria discovered that " Piarates didnt actually make people walk the plank!" and Kenzie-Ray found out that "one of the most famous pirates was called Blackbeard!". The children also had the oppurtunity to design their own pirates and used their literacy skills to write a detailed description of what their pirates looked like! Miss Forward was really impressed with some of the GREAT adjectives the children used in their sentences! On Tuesday afternoon the children also designed, built and evaluated their our own pirate ships! In maths we went on a pirate treasure hunt and children used their directional language to solve the problems and find the treasure!
