The Reception children have been putting in plenty of preparation ahead of our pirate themed class trip to the Golden Hinde. The children have been learning about pirate ships and what we might find on them. This led to some of the children building a brilliant pirate ship in the Reception play space. Instructions were even given to walk the plank!
Our reading work in Reception has involved plenty of pirate books being explored. The children have enjoyed reading Nighttime Pirates, Mrs Pirate and Ten Little Pirates. This work has inspired the children to create their own pirate patches and telescopes.
A corner of the Reception classroom has been transformed into a pirate learning space. It contains some pirate maps and artwork. We have also decorated the pirate area with some lavender bags. These were found whilst we went on a Reception pirate treasure hunt!
