Year 4 pupils at St Peter’s Junior School, Wisbech, wore eye-patches, bandanas and hooks and carried swords as they immersed themselves in pirate folklore.

Clare Rose, Year 4 teacher, said: “We’ve been covering stories based in historical settings in class and decided to have a pirate theme.

“Children have been writing stories based on pirate characters and they did a range of pirate activities in the afternoon.

“They went on a treasure hunt in the school field, were shown how to make pirate hats and solved pirate codes.
