This term in Year 1 our topic is Message in a Bottle. We will be learning all about pirates!
We had our launch day on Monday 8th January and got the topic off to a flying start. We made pirate passports, clay boats, parrots and went on a treasure hunt. We also had lots of fun having a pirate themed swim where we played games and enjoyed soaking Captain Armstrong!
Over the coming weeks we will be using the text Peter Pan in our Literacy lessons as a stimulus for some fantastic writing, making treasure maps, learning about famous pirates and the way they lived.
Towards the end of the term we will be having a Year 1 class assembly with a pirate theme. The date will be confirmed as soon as possible.
Many thanks for all of the wonderful treasure chests that were sent in – the children worked very hard and they look fantastic.
Happy New Year from the Year 1 team
Mrs Howle, Mrs Timmis and Miss Mott.
