Year 6 visited Plymouth for their annual residential experience and had a fantastic time. The group travelled by train to the city; experienced an urban environment by walking to the Barbican via The Box Museum, Charles Cross Church, Drake Circus, The Hoe and other historical sites before crossing to the Mount Batten Centre via the ferry.
Year 6 participated in water sports in Plymouth Sound on the second day before visiting the National Marine Aquarium on the third before heading home. In the evenings the group explored the history of the Mount Batten Tower and relaxed playing games on the nearby beach. Y6 would like to thank everyone who hosted us.
Throughout the year Y6 have been learning about key historical figures like Ernest Shackleton, Captain Scott and Darwin (who all set off from Plymouth) as well as the impact of the Blitz on cities and how it was rebuilt using art from artists such as Barbara Hepworth. Visiting Plymouth in such detail also linked to our visits to Pendennis Castle and the National Maritime Museum as well as all our learning on Climate Change.
