Nelson’s Shipmates!

Year 2 enjoyed a trip to Portsmouth Historic Dockyard on Tuesday 13 June. Travelling by Gosport Ferry added excitement to the day and they enjoyed spotting landmarks such as the Emirates Spinnaker Tower.

The ‘Nelson’s Shipmates’ workshop was both wonderful and informative, with five different activities about life on board ‘The Victory’. After lunch we boarded HMS Victory and explored every deck of the ship. It was fascinating to see how small Nelson’s bed was, he must have been quite short! Finally we went into the museum to learn more about Horatio Nelson. We children would love to go back and do it all again!
