Sea Shanty Shenanigans

8th Jan 2018

As way of introducing our new topic, Globetrotters, Year 3 have been writing and performing Sea Shanties. They thoroughly enjoyed singing some famous examples and created their own versions as well. At the end of the lesson we created a shared Shanty. Please click on the video link below- to see the children in full vocal force. If you fancy joining in the lyrics are attached to this post.

Throughout the topic we will be looking at map reading and map making. In addition, exploring the lives and achievements of famous explorers such as Marco Polo and Ernest Shackleton and create written work based on these enquiries. Our science unit will also compliment our topic as we will be looking at the effect of magnetic poles and how these aid navigation, through the use of a compass.
