Harvest colourful fruit and vegetable poem writing
We came up with lots of interesting adjectives to describe fruit and vegetables of all different colours! We travelled around the classroom adding our ideas to each poster.
Rounding the closest 10 outdoor game
Map skills round two!
Early in the week, we made our own amazing treasure maps. For the rest of the week in our writing lessons we used these to write interesting instructions to help other pirates find our treasure! We made sure that we used time connectives at the start of each step, interesting bossy verbs like "crawl", "tip-toe" and "creep" and adjectives. We also threw in some scary warnings like "Beware of the evil snakes or they will bite you!"
Later in the week we used the map of our school grounds to hunt for and record various pirate-themed objects onto our maps.
Pirate map reading in geography
In geography this week, Year 2 were cartographers for the afternoon. We went outside and created a pirate map! We began by drawing the island as accurately as possible and then recorded each object, landmark and animal on our maps. There were lots of things to be careful of, like erupting volcanoes and slithery snakes as well as some very scary things... Winne the Pooh as a pirate! We also had to horrible job of recording some pirates' very smelly underpants!!! We had a wonderful time and created some brilliant maps!
