The children transformed into pirates and set sail on a mission to find Captain Sparrow’s treasure.  Along the way, they developed their creative and fine motor skills by engaging in lots of pirate themed arts and crafts: creating pirate telescopes, necklaces, hooks, treasure maps and eye patches out of recyclable materials

The pirates were now well-equipped to face Captain Red Sparrow and used their map reading skills to find the exact location of the treasure; this was an excellent opportunity to enhance the children's language skills as they had to use positional vocabulary to explain the map to their peers.

The journey across the seas was a long one, so the children learnt many new pirate songs and stories to keep them occupied. Nursery learnt Makaton actions to support their understanding of key vocabulary and enjoyed retelling pirate stories to their peers using their best pirate accents. 

What a fabulous adventure Nursery; I look forward to more pirate role play scenarios next week!

Engaging in role play has excellent benefits and supports the development of children’s creative and imagination skills. Through role play, children can improve their cognitive and social and emotional skills, resulting in improved confidence, self-esteem and self-regulation.

The ability to imagine things pervades our entire existence. It influences everything we do, think about and create. It leads to elaborate theories, dreams and inventions in any profession from the realms of academia to engineering and the arts. Ultimately, imagination influences everything we do regardless of our profession.‘- Tao de Haas
