During the first term, September - Christmas, we covered the theme of SHIPWRECKED.
We planned Shipwrecked involved :
Geography - islands where we can imagine we might be shipwrecked, how would we survive, what would we eat, what would we need to stay alive ?
Which coastlines / islands can we learn about ?
Look at how boats are designed.
The history of people who have been shipwrecked, (e.g. Robinson Crusoe, do you know this story ?) also the lives of pirates.
Maths - distances between certain places and directions.
Obviously this is only a start, I suppose the films 'Pirates of the Caribbean' will help children to focus on and understand this topic ?
What do you think ?
