What we will be doing this term
This term we will be learning all about Pirates. We will learn all about the famous pirates from the past and what they did. We will think about pirate ships, the materials they are made out of and how we could build our own for Pirate Pete. We will learn a Pirate poem to perform for the school in our English lessons along with writing instructions, stories and messages in bottles. Linking with ICT, Geography and Maths, we will plan a route to find the pirate treasure. We will use lots of equipment such as compasses, maps and robots to help us. In our Maths work we will learn all about measuring using our topic of pirates to help us. We will measure temperature, mass and capacity.
