Ahoy! Years 1 & 2 celebrate Pirate Day
Arrrrr and ahoy!!!! Teacher-Pirate Captains Grey and Mansbridge have surprised their crew of students from Years 1 & 2 with a pirate day!
Throughout the term, the students have been participating in an English unit on pirates. They've read a variety of narrative texts on pirates, which have also supported the students' narrative writing ideas, vocabulary and text structure.
The students have learned how to speak like a pirate and use words and phrases such as 'ahoy', 'shiver me timbers', 'matey', 'aye', 'crew' and 'shan't'.
Our Visual Arts program also incorporated pirate art, which the students thoroughly enjoyed.
On our special pirate day, the students participated in a variety of fun pirate activities, including a treasure hunt, pirate games, pirate songs and concluding with a pirate party!
