Who be those pirates? Why, tis Year ARRRRRR of course!
Year R have sailed off to the tropical islands of the south (of Dorking) today, as they enjoyed an awesome PIRATE DAY!
Dressed in their finest stripey tops, eye patches, hats and even a few parrots, we began the day by mixing up pirate grog from whatever we could find on our island. Luckily, someone had left some cranberry, apple and orange juice lying around so it was rather tasty grog!
After watching Year 5 & 6's amazing pirate production, we split into different crews to take part in pirate-themed activities for the afternoon. We hunted for buried pieces of eight in the forbidden forest accessed via shark infested waters (thanks to Year 5 for some wonderful impromptu roleplay as we 'swam' through!) before walking the plank into a shark-filled pool. Last but not least, we all made pirate hats together.
What a fantastic day me hearties!
