Our current plan is Pirates (and a bit of fairies) and I usually theme the literacy & numeracy areas of the nursery according to the plan. For numeracy so far I've made pirate clothes washing line, treasure chests and gold coins for counting/number recognition and pirate playdough mats. For literacy, I'm not sure of anything speciifically pirate-y that woudl be menaingful for writing for this age - the older, more able children sometimes like having a go with topic words, which as one of the literacy outcomes is to do with new vocab I thought I would make with them, but for actual "pieces of writing" I've only had vague ideas about a log book...which I don't think they would really understand. Any ideas for this area (or indedd the nuemracy or other thinsg pirate-y!) Thanks!
