Pirate Day

This term we have been learning about Pirates. We have created our own pirate menu and pirate rules, using adjectives and adverbs to add description. We learnt about famous pirates, such as Blackbeard, Calico Jack, Anne Bonny and Mary Read and created a wanted poster using what we learnt to explain the crime they might have committed and the reward for finding them. We learnt about directional language (north, south, east, west) and used this to move around a map. We were also very lucky to have a pirate come to the Ryde School to visit us. We got to make eye patches, hard tack biscuits, treasure maps, dice and more. We learnt to scrub the deck, steer the ship and went on a treasure hunt around the school.
