Topic & home learning

Land Ahoy!

Yo ho, yo ho, it’s a sailor’s life for me. Get your sea legs on, it’s time to sail the salty seas.

Navigate, investigate and explore the world, just like Captain Cook. Make a boat, sink a ship, fly a pirate flag. Speak like a pirate, write like a poet, and find out what happened to the Titanic.

How do rescues happen at sea?

Find out about brave volunteers and young Miss Darling, rowing her boat across stormy seas. Sing a sea shanty whilst cleaning the poop deck, then search the school grounds for Captain Longbeard’s hidden treasure. There’s land ahead. Let’s get this ship to port.

The Knowledge Organiser for the topic is below, why not have a look through this with your child and talk about what they will be learning over the next 7 weeks. You can also use this to quiz them to see what they can remember.
