Parc Egos School headed to the National Maritime Museum Cornwall thanks to our School Transport Grants and it’s wonderful to hear from the school that “the children had a wonderful time and gained so much from the experience.”
Here is what the students had to say…
‘Henry Trengrouse saved everybody’s lives with the breeches buoy and he did a really good thing inventing it. I loved looking at the boats hanging on the ceiling when we explored the museum in the afternoon’.
‘From the lookout tower, we saw boats and ships and looked at the weather. We looked at sea life underwater in the Tidal Zone. We saw Cornish life and we looked at creatures of the deep. We liked the Maritime Museum and learning about Henry Trengrouse’.
‘The creatures of the deep was really, really interesting. Henry Trengrouse invented the breeches buoy for people to sit in. He helped people from the sea’.
‘Henry Trengrouse saw a shipwreck and he wanted to help so he invented a breeches buoy to save people. He was very clever. The museum was very big with lots of things to look at. I liked looking outside to see the different boats.’
‘Henry Trengrouse invented the breeches buoy. It saves people. You wear it in the water if you need help. We found out about a family who were stranded in the sea for 38 days! My favourite bit was the monsters of the deep.’
