Our new topic in Year R is Pirates and Mermaids. A shark box arrived and delivered pirate dressing up and new books to read to introduce the start of our topic. Whilst reading the books, we realised that we did not have a ship, flag or any pirate treasure. The children have been designing their role play this week, painting their ship, joining and making parrots and have found golden coins hiding in the sand. Did you know the skull and crossbones flag at the top of a pirate ship is called a Jolly Roger?
