Hello me Hearties!  We will be learning all about pirates this half term!  

 

Here are some of the questions that our class wanted to find out...

 

Who were they?  What was it like being a pirate?  Where did they come from? What did they wear?  What did they eat?  Were there girl pirates?  What was the pirate code?  What were their ships like?  Why were pirates marooned?  Did they make people walk the plank?

 

We will be finding out all the answers, and more, over the next few weeks.

 

We will also be practising for Sports Day, which will be held on Friday 14th July.
