Year One Pirate Day!

To celebrate our final day of our Pirate topic, Year One came to school dressed as pirates and had a whole day of pirate activities. It was such a fantastic day so we thought we would share some pictures with you all! All of the activities allowed us to develop our different enterprise skills.

Plank Walking (Tim and Tom the Teamwork Twins) – This activity involved us practicing our balancing skills in different ways. We even had to walk the plank!

Boat Making (Pete Problem Solver) – We used different materials to try to make a boat that would float. We found out that the plastic and the wood were the most successful materials to use!

Blindfold Trail (Lenny Leadership) – During this activity we had to direct our partner around the different cones using directional language. We then had to use our senses to guess what different objects were. It was very funny!

Map Reading (Olly Organiser and Polly Planner) – We have been learning about co-ordinates in class and had to use our knowledge of these to follow the clues and find the treasure.

Weighing Treasure (Freddie Finance) – During this activity we had to weigh different treasure to find out how much it was worth. We had to weigh them carefully and help one another to ensure the scales were balanced.

Sword Fighting (Richie Risk) – Our final activity was sword fighting. We had to take a risk by fighting our opponent – lots of us said it was our favourite activity.

At snack time we even had pirate biscuits made by our wonderful school cooks! We wrote them a letter to say thank you because they looked and tasted so amazing!

What a great day! We all made fantastic pirates. Well done Year One!
