Recently we read the story of Grace (Gráinne) O Malley or Granuaile- an Irish Pirate Queen who chopped off her long hair in order to join her Father in battle on the high seas. The children this week created dramas giving an insight in to Gráinne's life after the story. They used and incorporated props into their dramas. The children explored aspects of Gráinne's life, acting out her adventures as a pirate. This included many interactions with the Queen of England, and taking care of her children and her crew.
