n SWASHBUCKLING schoolchildren took part in a daring pirate treasure hunt at Sand Bay on Monday.
Reception class children from St Anne’s Primary School, which has sites in West Wick and Hewish, took part in the activity alongside Captain Whitebeard to discover whether it was possible to be friends with a pirate.
Teacher Marian Binns said: “We came into school to discover that our treasure had been stolen and the clues led us to Sand Bay.
“The children dug up the treasure and used driftwood from the beach to make a protective den. When they first met Captain Whitebeard, he wasn’t very friendly, but they soon became friends and he asked the children to build him a boat.
“It was a fantastic day.”
