Ahoy Me hearties, Pirates in Shefford

The children have been talking lots about pirates so we had a pirate week. Lots of adventures including threading jewels to make necklaces and hunting for treasure in baked beans (we love messy play).


They made a treasure chest to bury in the sandpit and then drew treasure maps with “x marks the spot”. Even the babies joined in smearing paint on paper to make their own treasure map.

We made a pirate ship, pirate pictures from different shapes and then had a garden treasure hunt to find their fruit for snack. A fantastic week covering all areas of the EYFS.
