Lizzie and the Pirate
by Peter Griffith
Lizzie falls asleep while reading her favourite book – a book about pirates! Suddenly her bed turns into a pirate ship, and the villainous Captain Porridge is leading her on a wild quest to the southern seas...
As well as providing an entertaining adventure, the play helps pupils to practice vocabulary that they meet in their first four years of learning English – colours, body parts, clothing, numbers, animals, directions, weather; and makes specific use of themes that are included in current text-books – the pirate ship, the haunted castle, feelings, food, and simple actions.
