Term 6

Castles and Pirates



We have focused on two different topics this term: Castles and Pirates.  We looked at the life of a pirate and created our own pirates.  We wrote pirate stories, diaries of our lives aboard our pirate ship and created treasure maps to find treasure.  

For our work on castles, we learnt why they were built back in Norman times.  We discussed whereabouts castles were built, eg: on hills and near rivers and then visited Rochester Castle to investigate for ourselves.  We had a great day!

As well as learning about tallys and pictograms in maths, we have been revising multiplication and division. 

What else has happened this term

We also had lots and lots of fun on our visit to Jackson's Park.  We went on lots of trips this term!  Another really exciting trip was to Port Lympne Zoo.  We all made our own book about Port Lympne and how they help save endangered animals.
