What a fantastic day!
On Wednesday 1st May, 2M went on an excursion with 2AL to Polly Woodside.
We have been learning about transport and how it has changed overtime.
Polly Woodside is an old ship that used to transport cargo. On the excursion, we got to see what life was like as a crew member on the ship. The conditions were very tough.
We learnt how hard it was to steer the ship using the steering wheel as it was very heavy and was at the back of the ship so to steer the ship you had to listen to instructions.
There was a lot of maintenance to do on the ship. Sweeping the decks needed to be done regularly and was a very hard job. It was exhausting! Especially with other crew members yelling!
We saw how the crew slept and learnt that it is best to get a top bunk so you do not get wet from the waves when you are sleeping.
We have such a good understanding of ships and what life was like working on a ship after the excursion. It was great fun!
