Ooooh Arrrgh… Hammerpuzzle have landed

This week was all about Pirates. Captain Jack from Hammerpuzzle Theatre Company, an associate company of The Egg theatre in Bath, landed in town on the 12th July looking to recruit more shipmates for his crew. He tried his luck with Shepton Infants parents as students as they arrived at school before scouring the classrooms for treasure. He seemed impressed with the way some the teachers ran their ships.

He sailed off for other shores and students settled down for morning assembly. But… what was that noise in the PE cupboard? Captain Jack burst out and led a full-on pirate training boot camp for students and staff alike. He tested pirate knowledge, taught some sea-shanties and told us some tall tales about life on the seven seas.

He also visited Bowlish Infant School and St Paul’s Junior – where he also invited students to draw his portrait in a mass portraiture session for students. Happy with his new Shepton Shipmates he returned to his ship before dark!Shipmates he returned to his ship before dark!
