Kingfisher Class have already had a great start to the new academic year by spending the first two weeks on our whole school topic of Pirates. The whole school have been learning the story of Captain Plank's Pirate Adventure and in Kingfisher Class we have been using this as a basis for our own pirate adventure stories.
In Art we have been improving our sketching skills by sketching each other and we will soon be using these skills to create self-portraits in different styles.
On Friday 15th September, the whole school had a pirate wow day where we all dressed up as pirates. In the morning, we learnt the meaning of some pirate phrases like 'scupper that' and 'ahoy there' and used them to write some messages in a bottle. We also look at some different pirate flags and had a go at designing our own flags. In the afternoon, we had a whole school assembly and got together to recite Captain Plank's Pirate Adventure and share the work we had been doing in the morning.
