Problem solving with Pirates

We have done some maths with pirates. We solved problems and we did some data handling.

Pirate Grog!

We found a recipe for Pirate Grog, so of course we had to make it!

Some people liked it and some didn't!


Mermaid Collages

We used different skills to create our own mermaids. We used watercolour paints and had to mix the correct colours we wanted.

We used collage to create the tails, thinking about which materials worked best. Some we overlapped.

Our mermaid cave now has lots more mermaids!


Pirate Ships

We couldn't come into school last Friday because it was too windy. We designed and made our own pirate ships at home - aren't they great?

We have also been playing with a lego Pirate Ship.

Traditional Tales of Pirates and Mermaids

We wrote our own traditional stories about pirates and mermaids.

You'll have to come into school to read the rest!

Finding out about pirates

We used the dk website to find out about pirates.

We worked in twos or threes and used the website to take notes.

We have added a mast and flag to our boat to make it into a pirate ship.


In Maths we drew our own treasure maps and then used compass directions and co-ordinates to write clues. We tested each others.

Our Submarine

We have been working on making our rocket into a submarine. So far it has a propeller and we have been painting it to look more like a submarine. We looked up how to make a periscope and we made our own.

Pirates Versus Mermaids!

In March we will be performing our pantomime of Pirates Versus Mermaids, so this term we will be learning about Stories from the Sea (including both Pirates and Mermaids).

So far we have been thinking about our role play areas. Some of us started to make a small world area with sea creatures.

We wanted a Pirate Ship, and we are really lucky as Ian found us a real boat that has been previously used in Shapinsay for a play.

Before the boat was tied up so we can use it as a role play area, Ian gave us all a ride in the hall!

We are going to try to make the rocket that we had last term into a submarine.


Our Open Afternoon about Space

Today we invited parents and people from the community to come in and hear our talks about what we have been learning about Space. It was great as lots of people came and all the children performed their talks really well. Everyone got a chance to show their models and their books that they have made about space. Well done everyone!
