This half term (Summer 1 2018), Year 1 have been studying the topic ‘Treasure Island’.

To set this topic off we had a pirate themed day; dressing as scary pirates with new names such as ‘Captain Treasure’ etc. We took part in a treasure hunt and learnt new songs.

The topic has involved learning about the history of piracy. The children created fact-files about Blackbeard and other famous pirates. Our most recent piece of writing was an explanation about ‘How pirate ships work’.

We have really enjoyed being creative throughout this topic; creating our own treasure maps and role playing in our pirate shop.
