A Voyage Back in Time
15 May 2015
Year 4 girls, accompanied by staff and parents enjoyed journeying back in time to join Tudor sailors on board the Golden Hinde, Sir Francis Drake's ship, moored on the south bank of the Thames.
Everyone becomes a member of Drake's crew to learn about all of the jobs on board and what life at sea would have been like in the time of Queen Elizabeth I. They take on the jobs of cabin boys, barber surgeons, gunners and a lucky few are officers.
This interactive History experience is always a favourite for the girls and certainly extends their knowledge and understanding.
