Week 5: 20th May 2019

Well that was a very quick half term! It feels like we’ve only just started this topic…


We learnt about the continents of the world and the names of the oceans in Geography this week. We then followed this on by learning about pirates. We chose our pirate names, learnt about life as a pirate, jobs they did on board their ship and even how to speak like a pirate. Arrrr!


In Maths we have been looking at repeated addition and the beginnings of arrays. We did this practically with resources and through pictorial representations. We played matching games, trying to find a set of cards with the picture, number sentence, ‘lots of’ sentence and answer that matched. We are practising describing pictures using ‘lots of’ and ‘groups of’.


In Art we carried on the pirate theme and designed our own pirate flags. We used the technique of wax resist to decorate our flags.


I hope you all have a wonderful half term and I look forward to hearing about all the adventures that you have been on. See you on Monday 3rd June!
