Year 2 have really enjoyed listening to and reading pirate books. One of our favourites stories is ‘A New Home for a Pirate’ by Ronda Armitage. Pirate Jed is not happy … Imagine a pirate who feels seasick all the time. He’s fed up with bobbing around on the rolling sea and packs up his belongings to look for a new home. During our author session, we thought about what our pirates could be called, why they didn’t want to be a pirate anymore and what adventures they could have on their way to finding their new home. We then wrote our stories, they were very interesting and some were nearly two pages long!
