To enhance the learning of this half term’s topic Pirate and Explorers, the children visited HMS Victory in Portsmouth. They had an amazing day finding out about Admiral Lord Nelson, the Battle of Trafalgar and how life was on a wooden ship at sea in 1805. After lunch the children attended workshops which included;
orienteering skills, finding flags hidden around the museum
pretending to be a pirate, dressing up
looking at and holding genuine artefacts from the museum.
The children had such an exciting day and were eager to write about their experiences when they returned to school!
