Pirate Day in Ocelots

We had a fantastic visit by Tim and John from Time Capsule Education. After a whole school assembly, each class had a session in the hall learning more about pirates and a session in class looking at the language of a pirate fight, ready for writing later this week.
 
We learned about the history of pirate flags and looked at some of the weapons that a pirate would have used.
 
As a class, we have already been learning about life on board a pirate ship and we will be using all of this knowledge to write our own pirate fight stories tomorrow, as well as creating pirate flags. 
 
Have a look at some of the pictures from the day. Eva and William were lucky to be able to take part in a sword fight in class! (not using real swords, obviously!)
 
Thank you parents for helping the children with such fantastic costumes.
