There was swashbuckling fun and games when Twinkle Tots nursery in King’s Lynn held a pirate day.

Youngsters dressed up for the day last week, wearing an array of striped tops, ragged trousers, bandanas, pirate hats and eye patches.

The event was held as part of the nursery’s summer programme, which included a host of themed activities including baking, crafts, messy play and dressing up.

Kelly Griffin, senior practitioner at the nursery, on the Horsleys Field industrial estate,  said the children had a fantastic time playing in the pirate ship sandpit and pretending to walk the plank.
