We have been making hand print pirates! We discussed which materials we thought would be best for what and we then had a go at choosing our own resources!
This week we found a very important message in a bottle. As a class we read it and found out it was from Captain Cutlass. He had lost his treasure map and was stranded!
Class 2 then decided we should make him a new treasure map to help him get home!
After our terrible break in last week the children decided we must inform the police, the children came up with the idea of writing a letter to the police in hope that they could help us!
We had some fantastic letters explaining to the police how we think this mysterious pirate may have got in our classroom and how this made us feel.
This week we came into our classroom to find there had been a robbery overnight!!!! We were so shocked and upset to find someone had been into our classroom, trashed it AND stolen from us!
We turned into investigators and we investigated the area, we found many clues which led us to believe it was a PIRATE!!
We decided we needed to find this pirate and make him pay, we decided to create wanted posters and stick them up! We came up with lots of excellent adjectives to describe this pirate. The children came up with mysterious, evil, horrid, horrible, mean, nasty, naughty and wicked.
As we return back from our Easter holidays we return to a new topic… PIRATES.
We have been making our own pirate flags this week, we have had a look at different pirate flags, what shape and colour they are and then thought about what materials would be best to create a flag.
This week we have been taking part in many fun Easter activities before the Easter holidays!
We have been putting together our own flowers talking about the different parts of a flower/plant. We discussed which season flowers start to grow in and why.
We then had a go at labeling the various parts on our flowers.
This week Class 2 attended the Gymnastics Festival at The Urban Factory! We had so much fun learning how to balance, jump, crawl, and roll.
This week we have been reading Jack and the Beanstalk. As a class we created our own story walk to help us re tell the story. We each walked our story walk and verbally re told the story before writing the story ourselves.
We found a letter in our classroom from the giant and his friends asking us to find out who the tallest and shortest giant was. We decided we must measure the footprints using cubes and decide who had the longest and shortest footprint – this would help us identify the tallest and shortest giant.
This week we have ordered the life cycle of a frog – we then wrote our own instructions using time connective.
