Sutton St James Primary School was invaded by pirates... or children dressed as them!

The school hosted a day full of activities in which pupils were invited to go to lessons dressed as able seamen.

Most chose the traditional look of skull and crossbones hats and striped clothes. The work from the day goes towards helping their literacy skills.

The activities included sculpting miniature pirate ships using clay and then joining together to collectively build one large ship out of boxes. The pupils were then asked to take on the role of a stowaway and write diary entries on the trouble they had boarding a ship.

However it wasn’t just the pupils who dressed up.

Receptionist Rachel Gadsden said: “The staff also got dressed up and made sure all the activities ran smoothly.”
