EYFS - Home Learning - Week Four

Dear parents and children,

As I write this I feel grateful that the sun is still shining upon us! I am hoping you will enjoy embarking on a virtual journey as I invite you to immerse yourselves into the home learning activities for this week with a focus on Pirates!

So with that in mind, avast ye, you landlubbers, come ride the waves with me! Sing a sea shanty or two with a yo ho ho and don’t forget to count your booty! I hope you have a swashbuckling time!

Much love, as ever, Selina.

The maths and literacy activities this week are mainly themed around the story of The Night Pirates. I have attached a version of this story as well as two others that would be useful to share. Please read the story of The Night Pirates first before completing the activities you and your child wishes to embark upon.

Science

Pirates are born explorers – can you embark upon some of your own scientific explorations…can you find objects in your home that will float or sink? Can you predict whether it will float or sink? Or, how about you make a boat that will float? Use the Pirate themed Science activities to support you if you wish.

Music

Pirates like to sing when they are on board the pirate ship. Can you choose a song and follow the actions?
