What an exciting week. During Mantle Captain Pete visited the children to talk about the responsibilities of becoming a pirate. All the children agreed that they had the right qualities and eagerly became a team of Exciting Explorers. They quickly began making badges to represent this and wore them proudly.
The team were presented with their very own pirate hat and celebrated with an “Arrr.” We can’t wait for our first adventure next week.
Our focus story was also linked to pirates this week. The book was called Pirates Love Underpants by Claire Freedman. The children found this story really funny and enjoyed decorating printable underpants showing some lovely detail and pattern.
In maths we have focused on using positional language and the children enjoyed following a trail. They used some good vocabulary such as up, down, under, in front and behind.
