Blow me down! A bunch of swashbuckling pirates swarmed Bridlington Harbour last week.

But they weren’t trying to plunder the riches of the town, but instead learn about the boats at the harbour.

Children from Bay Primary School’s reception classes visited last Friday dressed in full pirate garb.

Rebecca Baron, reception teacher at the school, said: “We had some wonderful weather which was perfect for the day, all the kids really enjoyed themselves.

“We had 61 children from two classes, they all dressed up as pirates and as part of an art project at school they had designed bandanas and jewellery which they wore.

“They have been doing about pirates and boats this half term, so it was great for them to get out on the pirate boat.”

The pupils went out for a trip on the pirate boat, looked at other boats in the harbour and visited the Harbour Museum, had a pirate picnic on south beach and made sand sculptures of boats.
