Today the class was taken over by a band of pirates!
We played some Pirate games and learned how to follow instructions from the captain of the ship, running from port to starboard, scrubbing the decks and saving each other from being a ‘pirate overboard!’
The crew demonstrated their skills with an over and under game to load the cannons and then they set sail on the ‘Jolly Mary’ pirate ship.
There were sharks in the sea, so the crew sent rescue messages in a bottle to ask for help.
In the afternoon, the children worked together to play pin the eyepatch on the pirate and made a fantastic Jolly Roger flag pole.
The pirates counted and weighed their treasure. What a great day of adventures! And a fantastic crew.
