AHOY MATEYS!  Year 1 have been learning all about the life of pirates and have been on the hunt for treasure!  As part of our topic launch, we were visited by Captain Barnacle who recounted stories of his adventures with other famous pirates and taught us a few of his favourite sea shanties.  We had a chance to explore and learn about a variety of real life artifacts and practised how to talk and laugh like a pirate!


After our visit from Captain Barnacle, Year 1 mysteriously discovered an old treasure map hidden in the playground.  We’ve had to learn how to read maps and understand the cardinal directions (North, East, South and West), and we developed our computing skills while programming the Bee-Bots to help us find the lost treasure!


Unfortunately, after discovering the hidden pirate treasure, disaster struck… Our good friend Barnaby Bear has been kidnapped by angry pirates – Please help us find him!
