We have been looking at pirate stories so far this term. One of the books we have read is 'Pirate Pete'. We have retold the story and written sentences about it.
This week we have planned our own version of the story where Pirate Pete visits different islands. Our ideas are very creative with Pete visiting School Island, Robber Island and Unicorn Island among others!
We shared our story plans with our friends, telling each other all about where Pirate Pete would be travelling.
After sharing our stories with a partner, some of us wanted to tell our story to the whole class. How brave they were to sit at the front and tell a story with everyone watching and listening! The rest of the class listened really well, enjoying different versions of our familiar story.
Here is a link to a retelling of another Pirate Pete adventure...
We have all written our own version of the Pirate Pete story. Here is our e-book! We hope you enjoy it.
Some pirates came to visit us in school today! We asked them lots of questions. We learned that we use questions to find out information. We used lots of different question words including as 'what' 'why' 'where' 'how' and 'can'. The pirates did their best to answer our questions. What a really exciting interruption to our English lesson it was!
One of our class texts for this topic is Class 3 All At Sea. As well as talking about and writing the story, we have been acting it out. We have made a movie based on the book!
