3 Red have enjoyed reading ‘The Pirates Next Door’ and taking part in lots of exciting activities and challenges.  We have been on a treasure hunt, investigated materials to see which would make the best pirate ship, and researched why heavy boats float on the water instead of sinking!  We have also made treasure maps using coordinates, created Wanted posters,  putting into practice the writing skills we have focused on this term, and designed our own pirate ships.
