Why are these pupils dressed as pirates? Because they ‘arrr!

LANDLUBBERS had better beware after a pirate invasion hit a Morpeth school.

There were plenty of pirates on parade at All Saints First School last week to round off a bumper half-term of buccaneers.

Pupils in the Year 1 class have been learning all about pirates, including taking part in weekly online interactive sessions, inviting parents into the classroom for pirate-themed activities and making special cakes.

There was even a search for hidden loot in a treasure hunt around the Lancaster Park school, and a trip to the Treasure Island adventure play centre in Coopies Lane.

The learning fun culminated in a dress-up day last Thursday, and even the teachers joined in.
