Ahoy there! This week, the children at Cliftonville Primary Pre-School celebrated the end of their learning topic with a pirate themed day.
Their role play area was turned into a huge pirate ship and the children and staff enjoyed dressing up as their favourite pirate. They even had two special visitors, Captain Mason and Pirate Clayson – the school’s IT manager and caretaker – who got into the spirit of the day by dressing up and pretending to steal the children’s treasure.
The Pre-Schoolers ventured over to the main school to hunt them down and bring them back to class to walk the plank.
The festivities didn’t end there, children also enjoyed pirate biscuit making and feast, a treasure hunt and singing a pirate sea shanty or two with parents invited to join in at the end.
Marguerite Tuffs, Pre-School Manager, said: ‘The children have all worked so hard this term and we knew that they would absolutely love to finish it off with a real celebration. Everyone got involved!”
