Historic Explorers.

Pupils from Years 5 and 6 are learning about explorers in the Tudor period this term. To help them understand the adventures and perils of life at sea in the age of sailing ships we are going to visit Hartlepool Historic Quays. Pupils will have the chance to explore two restored ships, including the wooden hulled frigate “HMS Trincomalee” and to see restored shops and houses of the period. We’re going to visit Hartlepool in September, the date to be confirmed.

Pupils in Year 6 have been using the new ipads to research the lives of some 16th century explorers and are creating electronic books of their work. Here are two of their books so far. I think they’re brilliant.

Christopher Columbus by Holly and Zoe.

Ferdinand Magellan by Izzi and Corey
