My 8 year old son loved learning about pirates and found the activities fun. An excellent pack and the display material is great. We love all your packs and as a home educator find them invaluable. Thankyou very much.

I have used this resource before with my own children as a homeschooler, and now have downloaded it again to use in my Beaver Colony where I am the leader. We are currently doing a Welsh badge which consists of doing things about Wales. As I am a descendent of Black Bart/BartI Ddu, on my dad's side of my family, used in your famous pirates part of this pack, I just wanted to share with you how amazing this resource is. I was born and grew up in Little Newcastle, the same village where Black Bart was born. Thanks again for your amazing work. Really appreciate it.

I love this site. It's fabulous!! I used the Pirates pack so much, everything I needed was there and the children have produced some incredible writing using all the different information supplied on it. Thanks.

Awesome Pirates Pack

I used this Pirates Pack with my Year 4 class as part of a collaborative digital project with another school. The resources were factual and there was everything we needed without spending hours researching for ourselves so that we could focus on the digital elements of the project we were taking part in. The resources were accessible by all and contained some truly gruesome facts. They were very useful as comprehension and guided reading activity materials too. Thank you Teaching Packs. The co-ordinates pack also worked very well alongside this pack.

Fantastic resource for KS1

I have used this pack during this final term with my class of Year 2s. They have loved it. They have enjoyed reading parts of the book. We have learnt a little about geography looking at where pirates were found. We have learnt some gruesome facts about the man who was made to eat his own ear and it has helped a very stressed out teacher to learn information very quickly. Some of my lower ability found some of the words hard to read and having some differentiation would have made it perfect but we all just loved this.

Useful pack for Key Stage 1

I loved using this review with my 8year olds. I enjoyed the fact that most of the materials I needed were collated and the children enjoyed using the colourful resources as aids to find information to help them with art and display work.

good for KS2

I used this with a group of 7-8 EAL pupils and realised the complexity of the language used in this topic. The visuals provided here were very helpful. There are lots of fiction books to stimulate and the non fiction text here adds depth to the knowledge about real pirates. There are some good word level activities aimed at older or more linguistically able children.

When one of my home educated children chose pirates as a project, I must admit I panicked a bit. Until, I found this fantastic resource that I could structure our topic around. The children really enjoyed it and there were things to occupy all of them, even the youngest.
