Year 2 had an exciting entry point into their new topic 'Treasure Island' today through a pirate themed day. At the start of the day, the children created their own pirate name and learnt how to speak like a pirate. We had to use our detective skills on our pirate treasure hunt and also practiced our balancing skills during the 'Walk the Plank' obstacle course. We gathered pirate related facts and completed various creative activities throughout the day. At the end of the day, we completed our knowledge harvest for our new topic and thought about what we already know about pirates and what we would like to learn next. We are really looking forward to starting our new topic next week.
