Show a leg me hearty!

We have enjoyed a fantastic start to 2017 and are already engrossed in our new topic: Pirates!

Over the term we will be studying Robert Louis Stevenson’s Treasure Island; we will be comparing different versions and interpretations of the story, and then will be writing our own play scripts to act out and video.

This week we have been exploring some pirate words and phrases and trying to decipher what they mean. Take a look below, can you translate these phrases into modern day English?

Batten down the hatches!

Show a leg!

Weigh anchor and hoist the mizzen!

Fire in the hole!
