Overnight Tudor Maritime Workshop - KS3

 
Stage KS3/4
Price £45 per person
Duration 15 hours (starts at 5pm and finishes at 9am the next day)

Through a number of short workshops, students will be encouraged to utilise the
environment of The Golden Hinde and its replica collection to uncover more about a variety of aspects of maritime life including raising the anchor, the living conditions, navigation, gunnery and medicine. Students and teachers will then sleep in authentic quarters on the gundeck.
The Tudor Maritime workshop can focus either on Francis Drake’s circumnavigation or 1588 Armada and students will utilise their new understanding to help them tackle the big historical questions surrounding these topics.
Students will also be given our pre- and post-visit resources, designed to encourage them to get the most out of their visit.
Dinner and breakfast are provided.
