The Night Pirates
One night, young Tom is awoken by noises outside his house. He peeps out of the window and what should he see but PIRATES. And stranger still – they’re GIRL PIRATES stealing the front of his house! Tom joins their adventure across the high seas to an island where some rather lazy and silly grown-up pirates are guarding their treasure. Not very successfully! Tom and the girl-pirates make a surprise attack and are soon off on the seas once more with the treasure!
Buttermere class have loved this story! We’ve had lots of dressing up as swashbuckling pirates, counting treasure and coins, drawing and following maps, hiding treasure and then giving our friends instructions on how to find it. We’ve used our den building and other resources to build pirate ships and make each other walk the plank and designed our own flags!
We ended this story and the half term with a pirate themed day!
