From Cornwall Heritage Trust Grants for School Transport


Pelynt Primary School

National Maritime Museum
May 2016

Dear Cornwall Heritage Trust,

I am a pupil from Pelynt Primary School and I would like to say a big thank you for giving us the money for the transport for our recent class trip to Falmouth Maritime Museum’s Viking exhibition. We all thoroughly enjoyed the trip and we really appreciate your generous donation. On the day we learnt so much about our history and about Vikings in Cornwall; it was a great way to end our topic. Your donation meant that the price of the trip could stay as low as possible, which means we will be able to go on more trips in the near future! So thank you very much!

Our favourite parts of the day were making the Viking coins, which we got to keep and also learning about how Viking longboats navigate in the ocean (which can be seen in the pictures below). Additionally during the day we learnt about Viking clothing and got to dress up in different outfits- I got to be the richest person! Furthermore we learnt about the importance of trade with different countries around the world and we took part in our own trades.

It was such a great trip so once again I would just like to say a massive thank you.

Yours sincerely,

Darcey (year 6)
