SHIVER me timbers!

It was a quest of counting and calculations for a little pirates who set sail on an adventure at their school.

The pupils and staff at Holy Trinity Primary School, Fordham, spent a day embarking on maths with a pirate theme to capture their imaginations.

Children got into the spirit of things by swapping their school uniforms for the day to wear an array of lively costumes along with the teachers and school staff.

The action packed day kicked off with an assembly where they were introduced to Captain Morgan from the Classroom Creatives education resource.

A series of workshops then got underway in the school hall while there were plenty of pirate themed activities happening in school classrooms.

Head teacher Ceri Daniels said: “I booked a pirate maths day to enthuse the pupils about maths and how it can be fun.

“They had a wonderful time, they absolutely loved it.

“They had to complete a series of challenges depending on their age group to help our Captain Morgan find the Good Ship Mathematics.”

Literacy skills were also put to the test with pupils researching famous pirates during the day.

Mrs Daniels added: “It is one of those days children will remember and hopefully they had a really positive experience of maths.”
