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!!!!

Pirate school

We read the letter and found out that Pirate Pete had been into school to take all our learning resources. At the pirate school all the young pirates have forgotten how to be a pirate and need our help. Do you know how to be a pirate?

Where did our classroom go?

When we got to school after the holidays we found that everything in our classroom have gone. There seemed to be a desert island in there, either a treasure chest and a letter.
Who do you think might have been in our classroom?
