Year 3 Trip - Cutty Sark - Sailing Success! 


As a year group we visited the historical Cutty Sark, with beautiful weather and lots of questions. We took part in their 'Sailor that went to Sea' workshop and learnt about the different roles on boards a ship. The children took part in role-play and we also explored a number of hands on activities. 


To our surprise, Sir Mo Farah was abroad the ship filming for the BBC and we got to have a meet and greet!
