WELL shiver me timbers! It seems that youngsters at a Petersfield school have led a mutiny in the classroom!

More than 100 Year Arrrr pupils at Petersfield Infant School left their uniforms at home on Wednesday and became pirates for the day.

Captain Hook also made an appearance along with a parrot and mermaid – and a couple of princesses thrown in for good measure.

The crew didn't actually do any sailing, as such, but they certainly looked the part as they learned about Long John Silver and tales of the high seas.

They also took part in a search for hidden treasure around the school grounds after taking part in a special assembly during the morning.

And the young seafarers also sang pirate songs, drew maps and iced pirate biscuits before pulling up anchor and setting sail for home.

Piracy is becoming a yearly occurrence for teachers at the St Peter's Road school as they held a similar event for Year R children last year.

And it seems to be all the rage in Petersfield these days, as it comes hot on the heels of an excellent Winton Players performance of Robinson Crusoe.
