Year 2 Pirates Day

The children had a great day learning about the lives of pirates. They measured the length of a Pirate Ship using metre sticks, carried out pirates’ jobs, such as climbing the rigging to be a look out, being the Captain, Quartermaster and many more. The class then acted out sleeping in small areas with their fellow pirates and imagined how smelly it would be. They tasted dry biscuits and learned about Scurvy, a horrible disease caused by a lack of fresh fruit and vitamins in the pirate’s diet. In the afternoon, the children tested their knowledge of directions, in particular the four compass points (North, East, South, West) and followed instructions to find treasure. Finally, they made their own parrots which were all unique and amazing.
