In Year 2 we have been learning about the life of pirates. We spent the day with a real pirate captain learning about how pirates would communicate with flags and what pirates considered to be treasure; it was not really gold they were after! Herbs and spices were much more valuable to pirates. Being a pirate was a hard job with lots of work to be done cleaning and looking after the ship. Did you know pirates had a strict bed time of 8pm?
We also learnt pirate sea shanties and were able to make eye patches and flags. Everyone had a go at making dice to play pirate games, some of us were scallywags and made trick dice to help us win, but no gambling was allowed on board the ship.
