Excellence, Aspiration, Inclusion, Respect

On Tuesday 26th February, a man came in and talked to us about the Tudors. He told us about the times when he went on adventures with Sir Francis Drake and when he was in heroic battles. He told us about the musket and how it all works. When you fill the gun powder pouch, then you pull the trigger and BANG! He showed us the little pots of gun powder and where it is put; it was called a pan. He told us about the depth finder and how it worked. He even showed us a bow! We also learnt how to work out what speed you are travelling at. He measured it in knots. He had a timer that every 30 minutes you had to flip it. Master Elliott showed us lots of things and I learned so much. Thank you Master Elliott.

We had a Tudor visitor come to our school as part of our Topic learning. He told us about his adventures trying to get gold from Spain with Sir Francis Drake. We learnt about how there are 32 directions on a compass and useful tools to find out where you are in the sea. I loved this experience and wish I could meet him again.

On Tuesday 26th February a Tudor visitor, Master Elliot, came and talked to us about the Tudor times and the Tudor Weapons. The first weapon he showed us was a Rapier Sword (a long sword with a protector over the hand).

Then he showed us the Musket which is a gun that they used in the Tudor times, he taught us how to load it. Master Elliot also told us about his journey round the world with Sir Francis Drake and it took 3 whole years. My favourite part of the experience was when he showed us some of the spices from his travels. We had to smell them and guess what they were. These included ginger and nutmeg. I really enjoyed this day, I was amazed.
