Our Topic this term is....


'Land Ahoy!'

Yo-ho-ho and a bottle of rum. Arrrr me hearties,  it's a sailor's life for me!

Get your sea legs on, it's time to sail the salty seas. Navigate, investigate and explore the world - just like Captain Cook!

Make a boat, sink a ship and fly a pirate flag. Speak like a pirate, write like a poet then weigh and measure the pirate's booty!

How do rescues happen at sea? Find out about brave volunteers and the young Grace Darling, rowing her boat across stormy seas. 

Sing a sea shanty while cleaning the 'poop' deck then search the school grounds for Captain Longbeard's hidden treasure.


Thar's land ahead, me buckos! Let's get t'ship t'port!

How to help your child at home!

Read daily, little and often is the key! Try not to make it too much of a chore, sharing books together can and should be an enjoyable experience.

Your child’s reading book will be changed weekly. Please return both the book and folder by Thursday each week.

Times Tables – Practise counting in steps of 2, 5, and 10. Moving on to steps of 3 and 4.

You can begin learning the multiplication facts for these times tables by rote.

J2Blast on Hwb is a great resource for rapid recall of number facts.
