In English, we have been following the day-to-day activities of Jake Carpenter, a young boy who has joined a sailing ship. We have enjoyed pretending to be Jake and have completed an extract from his diary, predicting what he will experience and have learnt about life aboard a ship. We have just reached an exciting part when his ship has been taken over by pirates.
3BS have been learning to keep safe in the water by having weekly swimming lessons whilst 3LE have been creating a pirate dance based on the music from Pirates of the Caribbean.
Still to come, we will be researching and writing about Captain Blackbeard, exploring cam mechanisms and learning about famous ports pirates once visited.
