Monday 22nd March



The pirate is back! And he has left us a gift...


Wait! There is a letter attached....


Dear Rising Stars, 


I am sorry that I stole Miss Miles' treasure but I needed it to help save my fish! Here is his fish tank. What do you think could have happened to him?


I hope you can find it in your hearts to help me, 


Your pirate friend, 

William Blackbeard



Have a look below at the tank the pirate brought in. What do you think may have happened here? Who could have done this?


Use your phonics mat to write down what you think could have happened to the pirate's fish. 


E.g I Predict that the fish had to leave the tank because people kept throwing rubbish in it.
