Woodpecker Class

Welcome to Woodpecker Class

Sailing the seven seas!

This half term Reception have been learning about sinking and floating through Pirates. We asked our children to make a pirate ship, thinking carefully about what materials they were going to use and why. The children and their families worked so hard making their ships and on Friday we set sail.

Most of our ships floated, although we did end up with a couple like the Titanic!
We had a fab morning sailing the seven seas and were able to take away lots of learning from our experiment.
