Welcome to Year 1
2019 - 2020
All Aboard The Jolly Middleton!
Year 1 had a cross curricular Pirate Day as part of their 'Wherever Next...?' topic.
We came into school dressed as pirates ready for our adventure. We decorated pirate faces onto biscuits - we had to place the jewels very carefully. We enjoyed sharing pirates stories on our very own pirate ship outside. We prepared a healthy fruit salad banquet; carefully slicing and chopping up our favourite fruits. Our biggest challenge was finding the missing treasure that had been stolen from our classrooms; we worked together to follow the treasure map and spell out the clues that led us to the treasure! We concluded our adventure by enjoying our pirate biscuits and watching (animated) pirates on the big screen.
Our topic this term is 'Wherever Next...?' We will be exploring a variety of pirate fiction texts as well as using non fiction sources such as books and websites to find out about famous travelling figures from the past including Blackbeard. Whilst on our learning journey this term we will be using maps and globes to name and locate different oceans and continents. Throughout the term, we will be creating many pirate master pieces including: treasure maps, eye patches and our very own pirate hats.
