Treasure Maps

Year 1 Blog ArchivedComments Off on Treasure Maps

This week in our topic lessons, we have been focusing on maps and directions. The children have created some amazing pirate maps, learning about physical features and using their art skills brilliantly.

We’ve used our favourite Go Noodle dance song to help learn the compass points (Never Eat Soggy Waffles!), we’ve played battleships to learn about coordinates (we all got very excited when we won!) and practised moving the Bee Bots on the ipads.

In maths we have looked at ordering numbers from smallest to greatest, greatest to smallest and working on a number line. We have also touched on ordinal numbers (1st, 2nd, 3rd).

Our focus text in English this week is The Treasure of Pirate Frank. We’ve read this book lots, we’ve put actions to different sections and drawn story paths to help us remember the sequence of events. The children can now retell the story with just the help of some picture prompts. I’m sure they can tell you some parts of the story at home….here’s a few of the sentences with missing words that the children will know. See how many you can complete!

It’s on the ________ that shows the ____________ to the treasure of Pirate Frank.

Over the sea that must be ________________.

Past the forest where ______________ swing.

Over the mountains ____________ and cold.
