Most of your activities today will have a pirate theme.

Afternoon Activities
Pirate Treasure Map

Have a go at making your own pirate treasure map. You can use the template below or if you have an adult to help you, you may want to stain a piece of plain paper using a wet tea bag and then fray the edges. There are some good instructions for making your own treasure map on this website. Click here to access the website.

On your map try to include some of the following features; island, palm tree, beach, bog, lake, bridge, waterfall, cave, jungle, mountains and don’t forget your X marks the spot!

Tomorrow – Google Classroom

Tomorrow will be our last day of home learning because Friday is a fun day and DVD day in school so there will be no home learning or Google Classroom. On our Google Classroom tomorrow I thought we could come dressed in our pirate costumes again and we could have a ‘pirate party’! Please feel free to bring along a snack of your choice, cake or biscuit! We will look at some of the treasure maps you have made and also listen to the last part of the story ‘ George’s Marvellous Medicine’.

Keep smiling, take care and have a wonderful day!
