Today Early Years became a Pirate School. Over the half term we have been receiving letters from Captain Pete Pigeon and today he wanted to test our pirate skills to see if we were good enough to join his ship, The Squeaky Sail. We were so impressed with the amazing pirate outfits that the children arrived in, they certainly looked like they were going to be good pirates! Our first task was to walk the plank into our rooms. Luckily everyone managed this and didn't fall into the shark infested water. We were then split into six pirate crews and given several tasks to complete. These included making a pet parrot, designed a raft, learning a pirate song, pinning the eye patch on the pirate, designing a pirate flag, testing our pirate memory and going on a treasure hunt. Captain Pigeon was keeping a close eye on how we were doing through his special cameras. At the end of the day Captain Lemar spoke with Captain Pigeon to find out how we had done and luckily he was so impressed with us that he made everyone proper pirates! To celebrate he had sent us some treats and a special pirate certificate. It was a great day and we are all now ready to go sail the Seven Seas with Captain Pigeon.
