A virtual information book with pages that ‘blow away in the sea breeze’ as you move through it. The book includes a glossary of pirate terms; a map showing where pirates were active; parts of a ship; a pirate crew; crew rules; treasure; weapons and flags.
Shared teaching and learning
What do the children already know about pirates? Can they name any books or films about pirates? How could they find out more about pirates and what would they like to know?
Children should be able to: draw together information from an on-screen text using hyperlinks; interrogate a text to deepen/clarify understanding and response; extend their vocabulary; word-process short non-narrative texts.
Key learning outcomes:
- To identify how reference texts are organised on screen;
- To build their store of technical vocabulary;
- To write non-narrative texts;
- To use layout, format, graphics, illustrations.
