Year 1 Loved meeting Captain John and becoming his Pirate crew for the day. We learnt how to sword fight and block enemy attacks but found the left and right instructions a bit tricky! We also learnt how to follow the instructions of the coxswain and row in time together. We ran ashore on a desert island and met a thieving monkey who stole our golden coins and had to try and get them back. Then we used a compass to follow directions and sail our pirate ship over the seven seas! We even helped Captain John solve the clues to find where his treasure had been hidden and each got a piece for helping. At the end of the day we had a storytelling session and were enthralled by the gruesome stories he told of famous pirates such as Anne Bonny, Captain Blackbeard and Calico Jack.
