Why can’t the pirate answer his phone? It’s off the hook!

Ahoy there me mateys. We have been having a great old time even though we are all landlubbers! We have been learning lots and lots about pirates and money this week with our teachers and in the sunshine room they have been learning all about plants too!

   

Some of us go to the sunshine room in the morning. It is lots of fun and we show each other lovely manners and we learn lots of exciting new things. Over the last few weeks we have been learning about plants and growing because when it was spring we saw lots of new things growing and changing around us. We thought that it was so interesting that we even made a garden centre in our Sunshine room to help us to talk about and learn more about plants- we even have some real ones!                           

    

All of us have been learning about money and we have got a bank in our Active Learning Zone and we have been making our own shops with things around us in our classrooms where we have to put a price on things and sell them to our friends. It has been lots of fun and we have been learning that there are lots of different ways you can use money.

                              

In number work we have also been learning all about subtraction! We are so clever that we can take away to find the missing answer as  well as find the missing number if it is in the sum itself! Some of use even noticed that if we used the numbers to add we got the first number!

  

We have been reading lots of exciting pirate stories and we have picked our favourite four!

  

We are all looking forward to voting next week on which is our favourite one!

We have also been making pirate chest with Mrs McLean. We think that pirtaes would love to steal them because the treasure is so sparkly.

Our topic is Pirates. We will be learning about coordinates this week(there’s treasure on there maps me ‘arties!).

Why can’t pirates learn the alphabet? They always get stuck at C!

This week we have listened to lots of pirate stories.  They helped us to use our imagination and design our own pirates.  We loved drawing our own pirate characters and writing a description of them.

  

                    

In maths we have been using pirates to subtract.  It was fun making the little counting people walk the plank! We can write our own take away sums.

  

In art we worked together to make big pirate ships.  The are up on the wall sailing the Seven Seas!

We are enjoying the pirate activities around the classroom and in the Active Learning Zone.

We are enjoying choosing new tasks from the homework grid and enjoy sharing our learning at home.
