Thursday 28th June

No pens, No Screens Day


Today, we ran the daily mile to really get the oxygen pumping around our bodies (PE).  Then, we created a pirate treasure map with 12 symbols and worked out the co-ordinates for each symbol (Maths).  After that, we read statements about pirates and worked out which ones were true and which ones were false (English/History).  Later on, we played a pirate themed game called 'Marooned' where we had to cut out various equipment that we might be marooned with as pirates.  Our group had two teams of pirates and one judge called 'The Beak'.  The pirates had to worked together to build a case for why their pirate would survive on the island with each piece of their equipment.  They had to explain why their equipment was the most useful and helpful in surviving being marooned.  The Beak's decision was final, they judged which pirate would live and which would die! (PSHE, English). Then, we used different constructions kits/blocks/materials to make pirate ships, telescopes and hooks (Design Technology). Penultimately, we learned the names for the different parts of a pirate ships and used these words to complete statements that made sense (Guided Reading).  Because there's no Friday in school this week, we had Golden Time during our last session, held our raffle and sorted out our Golden Apple person for next week and who would be receiving a certificate.  What a fabulous day we had!
