Year 4 had a great day learning about exploration, transportation and adventures at sea today. Did you know that Queen Elizabeth sent five ships with Drake on his quest to find new lands, bring back treasures and circumnavigate the Globe? They were called: Benedict, Marigold, The Swan, Elizabeth and Drakes ship The Pelican (re-named later in that three year voyage to The Golden Hind).
The Robinson family story really inspired us along with the rest of the survival zone.
The remote controlled sail boats were a big hit too – as always!
