On Monday 6th June, we launched our new topic, ‘All Aboard!’
We talked a little about how we would be learning about boats and the journey of The Mayflower to America. We thought about what we already knew and what we wanted to know during this topic.
We then had a 'Sailor Training' session to make sure that we had all the skills needed to take part in our voyage of discovery.
We had to show that we could:
- follow Captain's orders ('captain's calling' game)
- work as part of a crew ('islands' game with hoops to cross the hall)
- navigate with a compass ('compass points' game)
- steer a ship to port ('boat balancing' challenge)
The successful shipmates were awarded with a certificate at the end of the day.
