Yo ho ho! Young pi­rates in search of trea­sure at school

Buckinghamshire Advertiser - - NEWS -

AN army of pi­rates took over an Amer­sham school as part of their Over and Un­der the Sea pro­ject.

The year two pupils at Heather­ton House School, in Amer­sham, en­joyed a rip-roar­ing pirate-themed day.

Not only did all the girls and staff get dressed up for the day, but they also learned and per­formed a pirate dance in front of the whole school, com­pleted spe­cial pirate maths chal­lenges and made their own buc­ca­neer hats and tele­scopes.

But the high­light of the girls’ day was a spe­cially de­signed trea­sure hunt where ad­ven­tur­ing teams headed into the school’s grounds, fol­lowed clues and read spe­cial trea­sure maps to find tasty buried trea­sure.

Pupil Stella Berens said: “Pirate Day was amaz­ing. The best bit was mak­ing our hats and go­ing on the trea­sure hunt.” Year two teacher ‘Cap­tain’ Wendy Phillips said: “The girls have all learned so much from this spe­cial day, and we all had a lot of fun too!”
