Year 6 at the Golden Hinde

We had a great day visiting the Golden Hinde to supplement our history learning. Having learned about Queen Elizabeth I and Sir Francis Drake it was interesting to learn more about his special task and what life was like aboard one of his vessels.

We experienced what being a sailor/pirate on the Golden Hinde during Elizabethan time was like; sharing a deck with animals (and their muck); what would happen to traitors; and even how to load a small cannon called a minion!
