On Tuesday 28th September, Year 2 had a Pirate Day to launch our new topic of Pesky Pirates.

We made pirate hats and eyepatches, created treasure maps and learned some pirate words and phrases. Then we sang a sea shanty and tried an old fashioned dance called a hornpipe.

We thought of questions about pirates that we want to find the answers to during our topic. For example, what did pirates wear to bed and why did they like treasure so much?
