This half term we are learning all about pirates. The children will be exploring the lives of a range of famous pirates, where they came from and what legacies they left behind.

Summer 1


Pirates Galore: The Biggest Treasure Hunt Ever! by Anna Nilsen

Each of the pirates has a map of Barracuda Bay that readers use to follow the pirates from island to island around the bay. Only one of the captains has the clue that leads to the treasure. Which pirate captain is it? Map-reading and route-finding skills are introduced, as well as the concepts of coordinates and compass points. In addition to the main game, there are 12 individual puzzles to solve plus a spotting game, all of which lead the reader around the book.


How To Be a Pirate (How To Train Your Dragon) by Cressida Cowell

Hiccup Horrendous Haddock III was an awesome sword-fighter, a dragon-whisperer and the greatest Viking Hero who ever lived. But it wasn't always like that. Hiccup's memoirs look back to when Hiccup was just an ordinary boy, and finding it very hard to be a Hero.

Can Hiccup find Grimbeard the Ghastly's treasure before Alvin the Treacherous gets his sneaky hands on it? And if Hiccup opens a box that says DO NOT OPEN, will he live to tell the tale?
