Children will love reading or performing this short, amusing play script – and it’s one to revisit on International Talk Like a Pirate Day which takes place on 19 September every year.
These teachers’ notes accompany the PRINT ONLY guided reading leaflet in Literacy Time PLUS for Ages 7 to 9, January 2009.
Discuss and list the images that come to mind if you say the word ‘pirates’. Explain that our image of a pirate is called a ‘stereotype’. Can the children name any famous real or fictional pirates? (See Leaflet 2.) How well do they match the stereotype? (Eyepatch, hook, wooden leg, parrot, vocabulary, name, etc.)
