OOOOH ARGHHHHH! This week in R3 we have had great fun exploring pirates. We have completed our very own treasure hunt following a map, we even brought out wellies in to make sure we could go into muddy areas. We have learned how pirates let others know where their treasure is buried by giving out co-ordinates. It has been a busy week and we have enjoyed working together as shipmates!
Out and about on our treasure hunt.
We followed the maps to look for clues.
Some were tricky to spot.
Each clue had some coins for us to collect.
We were a good crew working together.
We outlined the pirate ship with blocks to see how many it would need.
Fun in the tough tray.
This week in games we explored dodging.
We had to get the ball to the cones before the marker could tag us.
We were out of breath by the end as we had to be fast.
R3's role play pirate ship!
Cheers between the shipmates.
We enjoyed dressing up as real life pirates.
We were given the task to construct our own 'Teamwork Treasure Map'.
We though of what we might want to include and searched for images.
We used these to help us draw and cut out our own creations.
We were very proud of our efforts.
We were all able to point to our contributions.
We talked about simple co-ordinates.
We could all tell you the co-ordinates for X marks the spot!

R1 have had another busy week. As well as opening the 'A Pirates Life for Me' topic, we have been catching up on things from the recent past. A pirate treasure hunt set the pace for the week. We read with our new friends from Year 4. Our week had a mixture of very hard work, fun making our pirate ship role play, as well as new and exciting play opportunities. This was fun, fun, fun!
