On our travels we met some pirates, but they were very busy developing their pirate skills.
Here they are working on their balancing skills.
‘Walking the plank me hearties!’
Here they are working as a team, and developing their aiming skills.
‘Battleships me hearties!’
Here they are working on their catching skills.
‘Cannonballs me hearties!’
Here they are developing their observational skills.
‘Finding an island me hearties!’
Here they are developing their map reading skills.
‘Treasure hunt me hearties!’
Here they are developing their sharing skills.
‘Sharing the booty me hearties!’
They had a great time at pirate training school.
Your child has learnt this little song to say Happy Father’s Day.
Hope you wear your tie with pride. Happy Father’s Day!
Well we had read the story, wrote about it, and drew pictures of the animals from it. It was now time for the best bit! It was time to sample the fruits from the book ‘Handa’s Surprise’. The children were really excited to try some of the fruits, but obviously not others.
There were some interesting faces, as children stepped out of their comfort zone, and tried some fruits which were new to them.
The children then recorded which fruits they liked and disliked. We found that three children liked six of the seven fruits available.
Well, the weather wasn’t great yesterday, so we used our time wisely!
We went and ticked off another one of our ’50 things to do before we leave Greenlands’.
Here we are playing in the rain.
The children arrived today in their holiday clothes for our flight to Africa.
They then set about writing luggage labels for their backpacks, and then filled in the necessary details on their passports, which would allow them to travel to Africa.
They then passed through security, and had their passport checked and stamped.
They then boarded the plane and took a seat.
The children then listened and followed the instructions given by the pilot.
The in-flight entertainment was then switched on, which was an African safari film, and they were served refreshments.
Let’s see what we get up to whilst we are on our holiday in Africa!
