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

Maple class have been exploring flight as part of our topic on Inventors and Inventions. Lawrence Hargraves invented the hoop glider while experimenting with box kites. Mrs Jones challenged us to adjust the space between the two circular wings to see who's glider would travel the furthest.  Reuben and Lucy won the challenge!!!
Literacy WOW - Explantation Text

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!!
