Students visit Dockyard

Forty students travelled to Portsmouth Historic Dockyard this term to learn about life in Tudor times aboard the Mary Rose.

The Year 8 students took part in a 'history mysteries' workshop where they examined the various  theories about how the ship sank. They looked at artefacts from the ship and tried to figure out what each was used for. They also were given a private tour of the museum and were able to go into areas that are not open to the public to see some extra artefacts.
