We have started our last half term together as Class Hedgehog and plan to have lots of fun. This week, we have learned about real pirates both men and women who sailed the seas stealing gold, sugar, cloth and food. In fact, pirates would steal just about any cargo as long as they could sell it on and make money. We discussed pirate legends and ships. We made pirate passports and wrote about pirates. We can now name different parts of the ship and we designed our own sponge painted ships. In maths we counted using tallies and chanted in steps of five. In phonics we practiced writing tricky words and using them in our writing. We learned a clapping song about sailors and a pirate corners game. We also made some very snazzy paper pirate hats by following instructions. Aye aye Captain.
