Yo-ho-ho and a bottle of rum! Get ready to take to the high seas and set sail in search of treasure! This half term, we’ll visit a boat yard, river or harbour to find out about boats and ships of all shapes and sizes.
We’ll write about our visit, read information books, investigate amazing sea rescues and write postcards and poetry influenced by the sea.
Our science skills will help us to understand how boats float and we’ll design and make model ships using a variety of materials.
We’ll study paintings of boats and draw detailed pictures of our own. Our map reading skills will help us to identify different seas and oceans, and we’ll learn about famous sea explorers.
Stories of pirates will inspire us to make pirate flags, treasure maps and fact files. We’ll even find out how to talk and sing like a pirate!
We can't wait to share lots of fantastic photos of learning here in term two!
Rochester Class have also been relishing all of the fantastic learning during our Topic: Land Ahoy!
We are sure you'll enjoy seeing the children's fantastic learning so far this term!
