Blaggards and Scoundrels
Monday 12 Feb was the Year 2 Pirate Day. It was a whole day devoted to bad behaviour, a day filled with marauding, robbery, ransom, following clues to hidden treasure and bad table-manners. The day started with an opportunity to show off our piratical finery and to pose for group photos. It was then time to get busy and in true pirate fashion we either followed clues to a chest of gold doubloons or set about terrorizing the rest of the school. After a sumptuous feast of unhealthy food (much of which ended up beneath the tables or down our fronts) it was time to get serious with our pirate jobs: washing pirate clothes, making hard-tack or sewing pirate flags. Everyone agreed that being a pirate is a tiring affair and we know that everyone (children and teachers) slept soundly dreaming of life on the high seas and tales of derring-do.
