Year 3 Visit the Golden Hinde

November 04, 2011
On Wednesday Year 3 travelled back in time to experience life as cabin boys on the Golden Hinde. Guided by one of  Sir Francis Drake's officers, we learnt about the duties of those sailing on the ship, the many gory punishments that were suffered and the rewards that could be had. With a cry of ‘heave ho’ we practised firing the cannons and with a round of ‘What shall we do with the drunken sailor’ we lifted the anchor. Even with the threat of being sent up the rigging to be the ship's lookout, all the children bravely volunteered for the next voyage of the Golden Hinde.
