Well this week we travelled through the ages and learned all about the pirate life.
From designing flags and ships to making our own floating vessels to test on our new water table next week. The children had some fantastic ideas and observations about floating and sinking and made predictions about whether a range of vessels would sink. They learned so much about what shape and features their own boats would need to be, I am very much looking forward to seeing how their designs work.
At forest school this week, the children had a wonderful time in the mud, exploring which trees can be climbed at school and balancing around the log circle.
To help us explore what life on the seas was like, during snack time we have been watching a Pirate Movie set in Victorian times so that children could see how difficult it was at sea (albeit with a little imagination around a the last Dodo too).
Next week, we're going to be finishing our work on pirates and moving on to learning al about Ancient Egypt (a true favourite of mine) so expect lots of pictures of construction and symbols and maybe even a few mummies here and there.
