Year One students at Umina Beach Public School celebrated National “Talk Like a Pirate” Day on September 18.
Teacher Ms Renee Pallas said the students participated in a variety of activities where they made their own pirate puppets and learnt new pirate words, which they used throughout the day.
“We learnt how to fold a pirate hat out of newspaper, building our resilience and listening skills, and we then went on a treasure hunt around the school,” Miss Pallas said.
“The students had to work in teams using their map reading skills they have learnt in geography to search the school for clues.
“These clues then told the students where the buried treasure was.
“It was great to see some excellent creativity,” she said.
