Pirates take over Potters Bar school’s World Book Day

TO celebrate World Book Day the pupils of a Potters Bar school donned their pirate outfits.

Lochinver House School in Heath Road was overrun with marauding pirates on Thursday as the boys celebrated the national day of books and reading.

Youngsters took part in a veritable “treasure trove” of activities, such as a pirate quiz and storywriting, which were linked to every aspect of the curriculum.

Author Pete Johnson also visited the children and signed copies of his new book, Spook School.

A school spokeswoman said: “All the boys and the staff dressed the part and special displays were mounted to enhance the nautical atmosphere.

“The day began with a short drama production from Year six called The Treasure of Their Dreams and the pre-rep department gave a rousing rendition of Portside Pirates to get everyone in the mood.

“A great day was had by all and no-one had to walk the plank!”
