From Cornwall Heritage Trust Grants for School Transport

St Uny CE Academy

Maritime Museum, Falmouth

On Tuesday 11th July the two reception classes from St Uny CE Academy went on a school trip to the Maritime Museum in Falmouth. The cost of the coach was kindly covered by a grant from Cornwall Heritage Trust. The children took part in three activities during the day. In the first activity the children handled artefacts at the bottom of the sea. In the second activity the children found out how boats are made, their shape, the different materials used and how they are powered. In the third activity the children explored the museum and discovered how Cornish people have made a living from the sea, how local craft were built and who sailed them.
