Some useful information for this half term:


Learning at Home 

Take a look at some of the work we have been doing at home, as part of our pirates topic. 



Our Visit to The Word 

As part of our pirates topic, we visited The word in South Shields. We learnt lots about famous pirates, what life was like on board a pirate ship and even dressed up as pirates. We also took part in a treasure trail, looking for coins around the building to solve the puzzle and find the secret word. Most of us found all of the coins and were rewarded with "booty" (treasure). 


Moving Pictures

We made our own pirate moving pictures. 



Outdoor Learning 

We used water and brushes to draw our own pirates outside. We then wrote about the pirates we made up.
