Pirate Day Pirate Ship
Exciting Pirate Experience
Pirate Day is an exciting experience for primary school children. Pirates are a popular topic for Key Stage 1 and many schools book our Pirate Day to fire up the children’s imaginations and further inspire them to want to learn more.
This is the Pirate Ship which is used in the Pirate Puppet Show, an important part of our Pirate Day for schools. The Pirate Ship is the back drop for the show but also the puppet stage. It can be set up in a classroom or the school hall.
The Pirate Ship provides a visual focus for the day. The puppets are big and colourful and the show itself has a simple story with lots of audience participation. It is often described by teachers as a being more like a pantomime with puppets.

Setting up requirements
It takes about thirty minutes to set up the show once all of the equipment has been brought in. Assistance may be required to carry bags and boxes if access is difficult or if there is a fairly long distance from the car park to the performance area. Here are the requirements:
- Can be set up on any floor space which has a flat, level surface.
- Must be indoors.
- Should have a wall or screen behind it to conceal the puppets from view.
- Needs to be located near a power point for the pa system.
Some teachers like to have a class photograph with the children in a group in front of the Pirate Ship. Other teachers take photographs of the children individually or in smaller groups.
