P3D Week beginning 29th June

We have reached the end of P3. You have all been such a pleasure to teach and I have missed the past few months not being in school. Thank you for coming in to school on wednesday. It was lovely to see most of you. I hope you have a great summer and I will see you in school in August. Make sure you wave in whenever you walk past your old classroom.

 

Signing out,

Mr Dunlop

P3D

Week beginning 22nd June.

 

Hello everyone. It is the final full week of term and I am sad we didn't get to be together again before the end of the school year. I will be back in September so I will come round to your new class to say hello to you all. If you have any activities left in your packs, feel free to finish them off!

 

During the final week we thought it would be fun to create a Pirate Project!

 
You could include:
Information on a famous pirate – their name, where they lived, their ship, what they were famous for and any other fascinating facts. You could make up your own pirate quiz, word search or crossword.
Or:
Information about all pirates; the history of piracy, why it happened, whether or not it still happens, information on pirate ships (their lay out, colours, purpose), pirate flags, the different pirate crew on board, information on treasure/treasure maps and some brief information on some famous pirates throughout history. You could include your own pirate quiz, word search or crossword.

You could present this on a poster or in a booklet and photograph the finished article and email it to me. I can then put these photos on the website!

 

Why not make your own Pirate Ship too? https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=1aQQm05fWMg

 

For the bakers amongst you, why not have a pirate picnic?
Try your very own pirate gingerbread cookies (you can simply decorate
Gingerbread men if you prefer!) :

Or keep things simple by decorating your own digestive biscuits or round cookies with fondant icing or icing pens, available in most supermarkets.
