Year 3 visit to Portsmouth Historic Dockyard

On Thursday 16th October Year 3 visited Portsmouth Historic Dockyard to see what life was like in the Navy, during Nelson’s time.

We had a workshop where we learnt about punishments and signalling. We took part in activities such as designing our own emblem, handling original artefacts, tying knots, discovering what was in the galley and becoming sailors by dressing up and acting out sayings such as ‘Hold fast!’

Later we went aboard the HMS Victory and found out what it might have been like to live and work there. Mrs Edge was quite happy to demonstrate which punishments were available!

We learnt a huge amount and had a fantastic time.Decoding flag signals Zac sending signals

Magical Maths Morning!


Year 1 enjoyed a magical maths morning at the beach. They had fun using stones to build towers. They compared who had the tallest tower and counted the number of stones they had used.
