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.
