Learning and caring together, building a firm foundation for the future

The National Maritime Museum

This week Skylarks and Kestrels marked the end of our 'Adventurers and Explorers' topic with a trip to Greenwich alongside Year 3.

 

We had the opportunity to see some of the methods of navigation used by early explorers which we  have been researching during our Topic lessons, and we discovered facts and information about Admiral Nelson in the battle of Trafalgar.

 

 

 

 

 

There was also an opportunity to explore the 'Great Map' and collect items and crew members for our ships using interactive tablets to bring the map to life!

 

 

 

 

During our self guided tours, some of us became sailors oursleves when we took control of the ship simulator. We discovered how hard it could be to take control of ships of various sizes in different types of water (shallow, fast flowing) before directing them towards somewhere to dock.

 

 

 

 

A brilliant day was had by both adults and children alike. A big thank you to all of our adult helpers and those who volunteered but were not picked this time. We are very much looking forward to our next trip!
