Moles' Pirate Day Wow Moment

Pirate Party 

We were so excited to receive an invitation to our very own pirate party at school! We all dressed up and had the most magical day!

When we arrived at school there were old treasure maps, enough for one each, in our classroom. We soon discovered that the map was of our school, so we set off on our adventures. Along the way we were surprised to find a pirate ship, the captains' clothes, musical instruments, tools for the pirate's jobs and even a deserted island. But best of all we found a treasure chest which was full of resources to help us with our learning!
