Pirate ship
There are a series of pirate related words which are shouted out in a random order by the teacher. The players have a action which they have to follow for each word. The actions are as follows:
Scrub the Decks = children crouch down and pretend to clean the floor with their hands.
Climb the Rigging = children pretend to climb a rope ladder.
Captain's Coming = children salute and shout out "Aye Aye Captain"
Man the Lifeboats = find a partner, sit on the floor facing each other, holding hands and rocking backwards and forwards (as in "row,    row, row your boat").
Captain's Wife = everyone curtseys (boys think this is hilarious!).
Submarines = children lie on floor with one leg raised like a periscope
Walk the Plank = children have to walk in a perfect straight line one foot exactly in front of the other with arms outstretched to the sides (children could also walk along benches).
Captain's daughter = children pose like a model (one hand on hip. the other outstretched and slightly bent) and say "Oooooooooooh!
Hit the Deck = children lie down on their stomachs as quickly as possible.
Port =run to left-hand side of the court
