All local pirates celebrated International Talk Like A Pirate Day by kidnapping all the staff and the children, and taking over the school.
They spent the day practising their pirate vocabulary, discovering their pirate names, designing pirate flags to match their desperate characters, making floating pirate ships and building pirate ships from large boxes so they could sail across the briny deep. There were songs and stories, the making of ships biscuits and a hunt for a lost treasure chest.

We are please to say that all staff and children were returned safely the next day, though strangely tired!
