Arrr! We be PIRATES!
Reception developed a passion for pirates this January as part of our Incredible Journeys topic. We were inspired by the book 'The Pirate Cruncher' to make our own eye patches, telescopes and treasure maps and the classroom took on a distinctly swashbuckling theme. Fortunately, those who had to walk the plank from our pirate ship role play area escaped the jaws of the giant octopus from the book. Many even lived to tell their tales in our Helicopter Stories sessions.
While we were thinking about boats, we investigated which materials floated and sank, then recorded our findings.
