The Reception children have been hard at work learning all about Pirates this half term. We decided that being in lockdown is a little bit like being stranded on a desert island so decided to write our own messages in bottles to send to one another across the waves of Google Classroom. Each child had a buddy to write to and they in turn would write back. Their messages were to outline the activities they have enjoyed doing at home, what they are missing about school and contain a question for their friend. The children were all very excited to write to their friends and receive a letter back. What a lovely purpose for writing as well as an opportunity to showcase all their fantastic writing skills.
