Year 2 have been using the Internet this week to complete some independent research about pirates. Their task was to try to discover some facts about pirates. This is what they found out …
- Pirates are robbers who roam the seas
- They steal gold, silver and jewels. Some even stole food, medicine and soap. This is called ‘booty’
- The cutlass is their sword.
- The pirate flag is called the Jolly Roger. This is black with a skull and crossbones on. It is designed to be scary!
- Pirates used a telescope to look out for land and other ships. They would climb up to the crows nest to search.
- Some pirates wore earrings because they believed it would improve their eyesight.
- Pirates would often sail around the Caribbean Seas because there were lots of islands and good hiding places.
