The Nursery held a week of pirate-themed activities to coincide with Talk Like A Pirate Day! Children were invited to dress up in their best pirate costumes, many featuring eye patches and tricorn hats, and really enjoyed taking part.

The Nursery Garden played host to a cardboard pirate ship which the children chose to paint in cheerful green and yellow. Indoors, they made their own pirate ships using lots of cardboard boxes and had fun ‘sailing’ them. The sand tray was transformed into a miniature world of pirates and ships, allowing children to role play with these tiny characters. They also created their own treasure maps using templates, cutting out pieces of eight and pictures such as islands to plan and create a route leading to the gold.

Butterflies and Caterpillars also enjoyed a Talk Like A Pirate treasure hunt in the garden. They investigated and found speech bubbles containing pirate phrases such as ‘ooh arr’, ‘walk the plank’, ‘shiver me timbers’, ‘aye-aye captain’ and ‘land ho’.
