As part of their topic on pirates, Year R asked for some top tips for drawing pirates from author and illustrator Simon Rickerty, who illustrates the “Ten Little” series of books.

Simon very kindly made a video to teach us how to draw pirates, which we are trying out in class. Why not watch the video and have a go yourself at drawing along to create your very own “Ten Little Pirate” in the style of the illustrator.

As a special World Book Day challenge we are running a “Ten Little” competition open to all year groups. To enter either:

  1. Draw a pirate in the style of Simon;
  2. Think up a new character for a “Ten Little” series. All entries should be brought to Mrs Lockwood’s office by Friday 6th March and have your name and class on the back.

Happy drawing and creating, arrrrrrrrrrr!
