Fair sharing – greedy pirates!

image In our outdoor learning area today we found lots of treasure, money, numbers and bags of loot. Pirate Pete came to school last night and was very grumpy with his crew because they have not been doing fair sharing. Some pirates have been taking too much treasure, saying that their loot could not be shared fairly. We have been having a go a ‘fair sharing’ between two pirates to find out if all numbers to 20 can be shared fairly between 2 pirates (Pirate Pete thinks they can).imageimage

These numbers were all a fair share. What do you notice about these numbers?

Some of the children in Reception decided to do a pirate show. We made tickets, wrote cast lists and a big sign so everyone knew where to come for the show.image
What would you do on the stage?

Water, water everywhere!

Today we used the pirate’s pool in our water play. We wanted to make a waterfall but struggled to get the water to move in the direction we wanted it to go in. Why do you think we were struggling?

We now know…

We have learned lots about pirates already. Andrew and Danielle found an old non-fiction book about pirates and found out that a pirate gun is called a musket. We have been writing a list of new vocabulary, here Harrison is adding ‘maggots’ to the list. He found out that pirate’s food was often full of maggots…blurgh!!!!

Problem solving

All week we have been learning to count in 2s. Today Pirate Pete had a problem he needed us to solve for him. He knew he had 8 legs on his ship but couldn’t work out how many pirates there were.
Can you solve the problem? How many pirates do you think there are?

Targets

Today we looked through our ‘Learning Journey’ books to have a look at all the progress we have made. We thought about what our next steps could be to make us outstanding learners. What’s your target?
