KS2 English - Treasure Island: Episode 1

Young Jim Hawkins is tired of his dull life and dreams of adventure.

1. Jim Hawkins and the Admiral Benbow

Jim Hawkins lives and works at The Admiral Benbow Inn near Bristol. His life is dull and Jim dreams of adventure. Then one day his life changes...

An old sailor called Billy Bones arrives at The Admiral Benbow asking for lodgings. He asks Jim to keep his eyes open for another sailor with one leg.

Over the next few weeks Billy Bones has two visitors - one of whom hands him 'the black spot'. The effect of this pirate curse is almost immediate and Billy Bones falls to the ground, dead.

Jim and his mother search through Billy Bones' possessions. They find an old map in a chest...but before they have time to examine it closely the pirates attack.
