Ivan's Treasure Island
This term, P2/3’s topic has been Ivan’s Treasure Island. This is based around the theme of Ivan and his treasure island which is intended to help children achieve a range of skills and knowledge relevant to Curriculum for Excellence.
The children have been learning to read and create maps, using recognised symbols, grid squares, compass points and scale, such as can be found in commercially printed maps. They have also been finding routes on Ivan’s treasure map and describing how to get from one place to another using features of the map.
As part of the topic, the children have made pirates, parrots, pirate boats and sailing boats, as well as creating a classroom frieze using different art media including origami, collage,drawing and painting.
