I was perusing the web for something the other day when suddenly I saw an image of myself visiting a school. A quick search found a number of other web pages about my visits. Not only did they bring back good memories, I thought I should put links to some of them here. And now I have!
Captain Burwash visits a Kirklees school in January this year … http://www.marsdeniandnschool.co.uk/kgfl/primary/marsdeninfpri/site/pages/ourclasses/classd
And here the captain visits a Sheffield school last November … http://www.carterknowle.sheffield.sch.uk/blog/?pid=43&nid=3&storyid=47
As well as a Doncaster school in the same month … http://www.gliacademy.org.uk/news/pirate_day
Sir William Petty also visited a good number of schools last November, including one in North Yorkshire … http://www.stmaryscofe-beverley.org.uk/school-life/visitors-to-school/sir-william-petty-y2
And in the previous November the big wig from London posed for a picture with the children in an East Riding school, which was put into the local newssheet … http://www.driffieldtoday.co.uk/news/education/youngsters-take-a-step-back-in-time-1-3998228
I love this collage from a pirate visit to Helmsley I made a couple of years ago … http://www.helmsley.n-yorks.sch.uk/images/Captain%20Burwash.jpg
And another page from a visit to a Barnsley school in the same year … http://year2.worsbroughcblogs.net/2011/11/23/pirate-meets-landlubbers/
I shall have to keep my eye out in future to see if I appear anywhere else. Apparently Sir William Petty is to feature this very Friday in the Barnsley Chronicle. If he does, then I can’t wait to show my two little boys the picture.
