Pirates Wow Day!!
We had a fantastic day taking part in pirate activities to launch our new topic ‘Pirates of the Deep’. We learned to talk in pirate speak, ate pirate grub, sang real pirate shanties and even walked the plank! Children enjoyed learning to tie knots and meeting a real life pirate (and he wasn’t even scary!!). The day was a super start to our topic and we have lots more exciting learning opportunities to come.
Persuasive Letter Writing
We have started our new Literacy unit linked to our topic on Pirates. We were introduced to Bart Roberts and Captain Davis who made some of us walk the plank!! Bart shared his persuasive letter with us. He was applying to work for Captain Davis as First Mate aboard the Royal Rover.
Maple Class are shining lights!
In a design and technology project we used our knowledge of circuits and switches to make a working torch. Maple Class are very proud of the end products. Team work and problem solving skills were put to the test!
We have been researching inventors for our half term homework project. Kira found out about Alexander Graham Bell and Leah taught Maple Class the Semaphore flag signalling system.

Experimenting with hoop gliders
For our Literacy WOW we had a very grumpy supply teacher called Mrs Smitherman!! Fortunately, Mrs Callun's husband arrived with his fabulous new invention:
The 'Teacher Pleaser' Machine!!
To help us learn how to write an explanation text, Mr Callun explained how to use the machine.
Luckily it worked!!
This half term’s project is to prepare a presentation about a famous inventor [ your choice!]
Presentations will be shared with the class and should be approximately 5 minutes long. They can be a power point or reading out your research. How you present it is up to you anything goes!
Due in Friday 28th March.
