Pirates and mermaids

Pirates and mermaids 1

Welcome back to the Summer Term 2 and the final few weeks to this school year. 

This term our topic is Pirates and Mermaids. The children wanted to learn more about sea animals and explore maps and countries, oceans and treasures. 

In English we will continue working on sounds and use the 'Talk for Writing' approach to learn stories such as "The Rainbow Fish" and the Cornish Story "The Mermaid of Zennor". We will be writing stories and non fiction reports about sea animals.  We will be ready lots of stories with mermaids and pirates and create lots of art and DT project relating to our topic. In maths we will continue working on our number knowledge and operations such as adding, subracting, multiplying and dividing.

We will learn about the history of pirates and will also have a pirate workshop with The Cornwall Council Education Team. We will discover famous artist who have created art ,that was inspired by the sea side and we will sing Pirate shanties. We are looking forward to activities such as our annual sports day, beach day and the Year 6 performance and transition days.

We are starting our "Learning Together " on Mondays at 2pm and looking forward to welcome the families and children that will start in September 2019. 

Overall a very busy but exciting term and once again we are looking forward to a special and long term. 

If you have any questions then please do not hesitate to come and speak to us. 

Your sincerely, 

Class 1 team
