Portside Pirates

We had a great adventure this evening in the library in Sant Pol de Mar. After making our pirate hats we were ready to set sail. Heave to and hoist the sails.

All aboard! Let’s sail the seven seas!

All aboard

We’re sailing to Timbuktu! We’ll find treasure! Pieces of eight!

We're sailing to Timbuktu!

We could meet Blackbeard! Shiver me timbers!

Land ahoy!

Land ahoy

All hands on deck!

All hands on deck!

Aye, aye Captain!

We talked about famous pirates. Edward Teach nicknamed “Blackbeard” who was born in England. He would put little candles or pieces of fuse in his hair and light them. They would give off smoke, giving the pirate a fearsome, demonic appearance.

William Kidd from Scotland who fought illegal pirates until he became one himself.

The Barbarossa Brothers from Turkey. They ruled the Barbary Coast of North Africa.

And Anne Bonny and Grace O’Malley both from Ireland and yes they were female pirates! At first they dressed as men while they were at sea but even when they were discovered to be women, they were admired for their skill and courage.

Charlie Cook’s Favourite Book

Charlie Cook is reading a book about a pirate captain, who is reading a book about Goldilocks, who is reading about a knight, who is reading about a frog . . . From kings and queens to aliens and ghosts, there’s something for everyone in Charlie’s amazing book!

Entertaining, original and it is the book we read yesterday in the library in Sant Pol de Mar. Afterwards we did some work about our favourite  books and stories and here are the results.
