The sandpit inside and the decked area in the upstairs garden have both been developed into pirate ships. The children made a jolly roger flags and painted a wooden plank for the pirates to walk along.
The children then followed their treasure maps which led them to the sandpit where they enjoyed digging for the buried treasure. They made pirate hats and telescopes. The children took part in some pirate role play, making each other walk the plank whilst scary sharks swam around beneath them.
The children have also enjoyed pirate stories and snack on their ship.
