Pirates Ahoy!

 It was “Ship ahoy!” at Bourne Abbey Primary Academy for the reception children when the Partake Theatre Group presented the ‘Treasure Island’ Drama Workshop.  The children went on an epic adventure of discovery, they jumped aboard a pirate ship and set sail in search of treasure!  First  on the map was a visit to Polynesia, where the children danced on the white sands with lei necklaces.  Next they waddled and slid with the penguins in Antarctica and after getting blown off course in a storm, narrowly avoided an eruption on Volcano Island!  Finally they reached their destination and after much digging discovered the treasure chest!

The children were so inspired by the workshop that they went on to produce some amazing imaginative writing by creating their own ‘message in a bottle.’  They made treasure maps and have written instructions guiding pirates to the treasure.
