What a fun day today has been!
Everyone looked amazing in their costumes ready for a fun packed piratey day.
We had to follow a set of clues to find the treasure...
We learnt about the different meanings on pirate flags and made our own.
The pirates gave us pictures of pirate related things and we had to match them in pairs. It was a great memory game and good to work as a team.
After recapping the different jobs on a pirate ship we turned Class 8 into a pirate ship and set to work onboard the Jolly Westfield!! It was great to get into character and 'scrub the deck' or 'hoist the sail'.
11 bottles were hidden around the thinking garden. Each one had a different maths number sentence in it and we had to work out the answers. When we had completed it we were given a 'pirate code'. The code lent us to a message.
On the laptops we played a game of phonics buried treasure. Here we had to sort the real words from the nonsense ones. This is a great game you can play on your laptops or tablets at home.
We are all really proud of the behaviour of all children especially on this scorching hot day.
