Reception pupils from St Helen’s Primary School in Bluntisham donned eye patches and fake parrots on Monday to take part in a ‘pirate day’.

The youngsters, who are currently reading a book entitled Pirates Love Underpants, were provided with maps and asked to find some treasure and then counted out their ill-gotten gains. Later the same day, they wore their pirate costumes to take part in a litter pick.

All 188 pupils from the school took part in the litter pick, which is part of a national campaign called The Big Tidy.
