Children in Year 2 worked in small groups to share their pirate knowledge. They noted down their ideas on pirate appearance, clothing, pets, boats and pirate sayings. They then generated three questions to explore further.
As part of our History Fortnight the children in Year 2 are leaning about famous explorers. Today they learnt the names of some very important explorers. These included Christopher Columbus, Sir Walter Raleigh and Captain Cook. They even learnt about modern day explorers including Dame Ellen MacArthur. The children created their own timeline and sequenced these explorers chronologically.
What amazing work from the children in Year 2! They have applied the techniques that Mrs Hardy has been teaching them in Art to sketch a section of a boat.
This afternoon the children in Year 2 have been creating treasure maps. They included lots of scary features such as a crocodile infested swamp! They are now beginning to create a set of instructions to go with their maps. Keep checking our blog for updates.
