It would be great for the children to continue their topic learning at home, and then bring in their work to share with us.

Some ideas for this half term are:-

  • to create a treasure map
  • to make a treasure chest &/or treasure
  • to make a telescope
  • to draw Captain Hook and write a description of him- remember to use lots of expanded noun phrases!

We look forward to seeing your work in class!
