Thank you to everyone who had voted for next weeks story. Please follow this link if you haven’t voted.

Today we are going to create a pirate wanted poster for the pirate Captain from the story Pirates Love underpants.

A wanted poster needs a description of the person so people know what to look for.

How can you describe him? Talk your ideas with your adult first.

What does he look like?

What is he wearing?


Here is the poster to have a go at. You can draw the pirate in your book if you cannot print and write his description underneath.

Don’t forget to add a reward at the end for how much gold someone would get if they find him.



Today we are looking at capacity which is a different type of measuring. Can you remember what it is?

Capacity looks at how much a container can hold.


Look at this from white Rose.

Some you may have had before but it’s good to recap these words as they are the words children need to be able to spell in year 1. Please try to practice them at home. You could do your own test next week if you like?
