We start our new term as ‘Pirates’ in Reception! Our role play area is a pirate ship and we will be setting sail for lots of adventures!
For the next two weeks, the children are taking part in a whole school ‘Geography’ enquiry. The enquiry focus for Reception is to create and read basic maps in the local environment. As well as ‘Treasure Islands’ and ‘Distant Lands’, we will be using the school grounds and local environment to explore. We will be spending some time working with Year 1&2 also which will be a fabulous experience.
So to kick start our topic, we will be making Pirate hats and telescopes, eye patches and swords and setting off on a ‘Treasure Hunt’ around the school ground!
