Autumn 1

We have been learning about pirates as part of our topic. One of the stories we have read is Pirate Pete. We have written stories about Pirate Pete and then we wrote our own stories based on the story we read as a class. The children really enjoyed the story and practised talking like a pirate. Below is a link to another Pirate Pete story your children may enjoy.

We were very lucky to have some pirates who visited our classroom. We were able to ask them lots of questions using the question words we have been looking at in class. We then wrote lots of questions for pirates. Such as "Where do you sleep?"  "What is your favourite thing?" "Who lives with you?" "Why do you like gold?"  We love learning about pirates and writing about them!

We looked at rhymes this week in English and Music. School had a visit from the Rhyme Rocket (as seen on CBeebies!!) and helped them to collect rhyming words. We found rhymes for words like rocket, mouse, cake and moon. We had an amazing time and learnt a lot!

Another book we have looked at this term is 'Class Three All At Sea'. We liked this story because of the rhymes and because some of it was silly. We talked a lot about the story and created a plan using 'first' 'then' and 'finally' to show what happened in the story. We then did some drama lessons where we acted out the story in groups. We performed our scenes to each other at the end of the lessons. We had some fantastic acting and wonderful pirate voices. The drama lessons helped us to really understand the story and think about what happens.
