Welcome to year 1 and 2 taught by Mr Dowe and Miss Lucas. 

This term, our topic is pirates!

During this topic, the children will be learning about what a pirate was and what they did. They will be discovering what they wore and will use this information to design and make their own pirate coats. They will be building their own pirate ships and then learning about the different parts, rooms and jobs the pirates had to do. In art, they will be designing their own pirate flag and then learning how pirates used this, along with other strategies, to attack other ships. Blackbeard, Anne Bonny and Mary Read will be the famous pirates the children will learn about. They will find out about their lives and why Blackbeard was so feared. In cookery, the children will explore what pirates ate and will make and sample hard tack. Finally, the children will learn what pirates did for fun. They will sing shanties and create their own pirate dance.
