Reception and Lower First – class trip to Discovery


Reception and Lower First class trip to Discovery

Our Reception and Lower First class has been learning about some of the early expeditions to Antarctica, including Scott, Shackleton and Amundson and those nautical ‘adventurers’: pirates…arrgh. Happily Kilgraston has the fantastic Discovery Point just along the motorway so class teacher Mrs Stewart filled us in on their recent class trip:

A troupe of terrifying pirates left Kilgraston to go aboard the Discovery. We were made to scrub the decks before sitting round the Captain’s table. We were shown around the boat by Kim, who introduced us to the crew and answering a thousand questions.

We then went to a ‘discovery room’ to learn more about Captain Scott and his expeditions to Antarctica. We were able to model the clothes he and his crew would have worn, comparing them to modern day clothing.

The hungry pirates ate all their lunch and then it was quiz time round the museum and gallery.

A great day was had by all, with no-one having to climb the rigging, walk the plank or being fed to sharks!
