Claires Court pupils enjoy ship-shape pirate day
Children at Claires Court Junior Boys were pirates for the day on Friday

A pirate's life proved full of fun at Claires Court Junior Boys on Friday.

Pupils at the school in Maidenhead Thicket took part in a range of ship-shape activities throughout the day including making cutlasses and treasure maps, learning to tie knots, and reading pirate poems aloud.

They also measured out the size of famous galleon the Golden Hind, marking out the shape on the grass, created seascapes with watercolours and more - all while dressed as and talking like pirates.

Teacher Susan Payne said: "The boys had a wonderful day as pirates, they really embraced the topic so much enthusiasm. "The day was packed full of activity, they learnt so much without realising it. Being a pirate is very tiring though so we were all ready for our hammocks at the end of the day."

The activities supported the school's year two history work.
