A strange letter turned up in Miss Hays’ register this week. It was from Professor Bumblebeard, she wanted Class 3 to travel to the Carribean to carry out some archaeological research on pirate artefacts. We planned a list of things we would take with us. However… there was a shipwreck on the way and we ended up washed up on a desert island!

The children acted out waking up on a desert island. We talked about what they would touch (crabs and lots of sand!), what they would hear (the waves and exotic birds) and what they would see (palm trees). We then hot-seated how they would feel, feeling lonely and being away from home. We decided to write a message in a bottle to see if anyone could come and save us. SOS!
