JOURNEYS, TRANSPORT, NELSON, TRAFALGAR

Role play tours in which the children take the part of 18th century visitors to see the village where ships for Nelson’s navy are built, including his favourite Agamemnon. Learn about Nelson, Master Shipbuilder Henry Adams, the cat-o-nine-tails, and more about life in the 18th century village.


A very warm thank you to all involved yesterday in making it a really super morning both on the river and in the museum, the year 7 children were particularly interested and had to be almost dragged out to enable us to keep to our schedule.
