| Year 1

Year 1 have had an exciting first week as our Pirates topic began with an exciting treasure hunt and a chest left by a mysterious pirate! The children had to solve a series of phonics based clues to crack the code that led them to the treasure! Since discovering the chest, our focus in English has been to improve our use of adjectives and we have described what we would like to fond in a treasure chest and are also writing descriptive profiles to describe a [pirate of our own.

In Science, a stranded pirate sent us a video message and asked us to help him test some materials to discover whioch floated the best. We have used the results of our experiment to design him a new ship using material that floated well. Hopefully he will be back to sailing the high seas soon!
