Year 2 have loved learning about Grace O’Malley’s life as a fearless pirate queen this half term. We’ve taken inspiration from her and made our own character descriptions about a pirate called Bloodcurdler Bill. We have been practising our powerful adjectives to create exciting 2A sentences and used these to write a setting description for a tropical island.
We also finished off our pirate adventure by creating our very own treasure maps. We stained the paper and ripped the edges to make them look extra old. Then we drew our maps, making sure there were lots of perilous obstacles on the quest to find treasure.
