Perfect pirates

CHILDREN were not made to walk the plank but instead hunted for buried treasure when pirates took over their school.

Youngsters at Worlebury St Paul’s Primary School were given treasure maps and a trail of clues leading to three pieces of an old letter.

They pieced it together and found out it was from Long Jack Silver who said his enemy Long Jim had stolen his belongings.

The children were asked to build him a new pirate ship, treasure and chest, food, flags and a new outfit during the day of fun in Woodspring Avenue.
