Land Ahoy!

Welcome to the Autumn term!  We are so excited because we will be learning all about pirates! 



In English, we will be using a great text, the Pirates Next Door to describe characters and settings, write a message in a bottle and create a wanted poster.  In non-fiction, we will be researching famous pirates and writing a  report,  writing a set of instructions as well as creating an information sheet.

In Maths, we will continue to build on our understanding of number and place value.  As well as counting in 2s, 5s and 10s we will also learn to count in 3s.  We will then move on to the four operations, addition, subtraction, multiplication and division.


In Science, we will be learning about how animals change and grow and what we need to do to look after animals.  Linking to our topic, we will be learning about habitats and how plants grow in hot countries.  We will also be learning about materials and which one is best to make a raft from.

In History, we will be learning about famous pirates including Blackbeard, William Kidd and Ann Bonny as well as finding out what is was like to be a pirate and what life on board a pirate ship was like.
