Reception's magic wonder wellies took them on a pirate adventure! It started with a message in a bottle from Pirate Blackbeard who had stolen Star, their seal puppet! The children each wrote letters to the pirate saying 'Please can we have Star back'. They put them in bottles and sent them back to Blackbeard. The class also had a treasure hunt where they found some chocolate coins! They played with small pirate ships and made their own from different construction toys and large boxes too. In addition, the children also found treasure buried in the sand, played a pirate phonics game on the Clever Touch screen, read pirate stories and made their own pirate hooks. Finally, they received a package from the office.... it was Star! Pirate Blackbeard was very sorry and had returned their friend. What a busy week!
