Event - Talk Like a Pirate Day
19 September 2013
This annual event was bigger, brighter and busier than ever this year.
A fun packed day, when everybody got into the spirit by dressing up in a variety of amazing outfits.
A visiting pirate worked closely with Year 3 and 4 creating imaginative writing scenarios. Treasure islands hosted lots of budding writers. Thank you to our PTFA for funding this opportunity.
Year 2 and 5 played host to pirate visitors from local schools, with Year 3 and 4 pupils from Osborne school working with Year 2, and Year 5 from SS Peter and Pauls collaborating with Year 5.
Throughout the day, cries of ahoy, arggh, and aye aye captain could be heard as Pirate themed lessons were enjoyed. Treasure chest dilemmas, treasure island co-ordinates and pirate word problems were completed in numeracy; puzzles, games and challenges were attempted in ICT and descriptive writing in Literacy were among just some of the fantastic fun that took place during the day.
Our super pirates were even featured in a local newspaper article!
