CHILDREN at a Wisbech school ditched their school uniforms and instead dressed as pirates on a swashbuckling special themed day.
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.
