We celebrated the end of the year with a fantastic Pirate Party in our outdoor area. Having learnt all about pirates over the last two weeks, the children were so excited and they made flags, invitations and maps in preparation! Parents, grandparents, carers and other family members were invited to join us and despite having the first rain shower in weeks, we still managed to have a great time! The children, teachers and even some brave parents dressed up in pirate costumes! The children were surprised when a 'real' pirate came to visit us and joined in the fun! There were lots of activities for the children to take part in, such as - pin the eye patch on the pirate, hook the treasure, feed hungry Harry the pirate, walk the plank, sail the pirate ship, make a treasure map and make pirate biscuits. We also had some yummy food that the parents bought along to share. All in all we had a wonderful time!
