The Voyage of the Mystery at the Maritime Museum

Our first topic back this year is "What a Wonderful World" and so along with the KS2 class from Boskenwyn School we ventured to the Maritime Museum in  Falmouth to learn about the "Voyage of the Mystery." Rumour had it that a group of fishermen from Cornwall managed to sail to Australia in their little fishing boat... so we went to find out more!
During the day we were immersed in the fantastic storytelling, had a go at making our own rope, we sailed the remote controlled sailing boats and explored a wide range of nautical exhibitions at the museum.
It was a fantastic day and we used what were had learnt to spark off some further learning in our enquiry lessons once we returned to school.
