Creative skills were tested at Woodlands Park Primary School in Maidenhead on Friday last week as pupils were given the task of making their very own pirate ships.
As part of a beach craft session run by a tutor from Norden Farm Centre for the Arts who visited the school, pupils stretched their imaginations as they created a fleet of hand-crafted ships.
Using a variety of recyclable materials including plastic bottles and containers, children had to make sure each of their ships could float with each of them tested out in a 'shark infested' paddling pool.
"They loved it," said Jo Young, assistant head at the school in Heywood Avenue.
"I was very impressed, they all worked well as a team."
Liquid Leisure Windsor has issued a statement following the death of an 11-year-old girl at the water park on Saturday afternoon.
