Pirate Sleepover (Easter 2004)

Our Captains battle it out
In the Easter Holidays of 2004 we had a pirate themed sleepover.

Our sixes were the parrots and the peg-legs.

We coloured a pirate to represent us on the Who's Who chart, and made six badges.

and negotiated a pirate code with their six captain.

Next we tested our pirate skills. We learnt some whistle calls used onboard ship, and played a game using them. We demonstrated our sword skills by bursting water balloons. We were guided by our crew mates through "rocky waters".

We tested our ability to climb the rigging and run from the King's soldiers on this obstacle course. We then tested our aim by "bombing" ships.

Finally we demonstrated our skill with a gun. Back indoors we made pirate ships which used special knots and played a game which involved lying.

Watching the little vampire
When everyone was ready for bed, we had hot chocolate and a biscuit. Those who wanted to were able to watch a children's film. They choose to watch The Little Vampire.

At midnight, those who were awake had a midnight feast.

We made parrot finger puppets.

We used hama beads to make fridge magnets in the shape of a ship, pirate or Jolly Roger flag.

We hunted for stolen medallions and solved their riddle.
