This afternoon we fully immersed ourselves in the life of a pirate on the ocean waves! We begin our new Talk 4 Writing unit of work tomorrow, The Story of Pirate Tom. We spent time this afternoon scrubbing the decks, climbing the rigging, making jelly seas and orange pirate boats, looking for land through our handmade telescopes and a whole host of other pirate activities.
Within just a few minutes “pirate talk” could be heard with phrases like “shiver me timbers” and “ahoy there, me hearties” being used! I am very much looking forward to introducing Pirate Tom to the children and seeing what adventures he might take them on.
