KS2 English - Treasure Island: Episode 3

3: Long John Silver and the Hispaniola

Three weeks later Jim arrives in Bristol, with a note to find a Mr Silver who will show him to the Squire's ship.

He finds Silver - Long John Silver - down by the docks. Silver has just one leg.

Silver rows Jim out to the Hispaniola, where the Squire is already waiting on board.

Jim meets Captain Smollett and the other crew members - apparently all hand-picked by Long John Silver himself.
