Our topic this term is called Treasure Troves and Treason! We will be learning about famous Pirates and what it would have been to live the life of a Pirate. We are also going to explore Pirate ships and other famous ships such as the Titanic. We will be creating our own treasure maps using co-ordinates in Maths and we will be learning a brand new Pirate story in English.

We will be learning about coasts and comparing them to our local environment and we will be exploring floating and sinking in Science. We will be cooking and tasting some real life Pirate food called hardtack biscuits and we will be going on some exciting trips to the Seaside to explore the different types of creatures and things found in Rock pools, on the beach as well as under the sea.

In PE we will be focussing on the outdoor games Hockey, Tennis and Rounders and we will also be completing some Commando Jo activities! In ICT we will be learning about coding and sending and receiving emails! Our teachers have told us we may be getting a special email from a real Pirate!

We will also be having some special visits to our new classes ready for September and we get to meet our new class teachers. We will be spending some time preparing our One Page Profiles to give to our new teachers so they get to learn what is important to us and how best to support us. This will be a very busy and exciting time for us!
