This free resource aimed at KS2 follows the crew of a sailing ship which is shipwrecked on a desert island. The crew is faced with the challenge of organising their affairs under new circumstances. They have to decide how to share the food they find and, later, they face a similar problem even more acutely when they discover some treasure. At the same time, the question arises as to how to punish their former captain for the way he had treated them.

Key ideas:

■ fairness or justice with respect to ownership of property 
■ sharing and not sharing 
■ democracy and the ‘rule of law’ 
■ the difference between power and authority 
■ the difference between revenge and justice.
