Thank you very much, we had a very good trip to the Maritime Museum.
First, we learnt about pirate treasure. It was amazing – we learnt that it came from all over the world. We saw gold and booty and we smelled spices. Next, we went and saw some pirate weapons which were a cutlass and a pistol and a rat (it was dead!). We got to hold them. We thought about pirate battles and we looked at a ship in a painting. Then we built a pirate ship each and we raced them on the water. That was amazing, amazing, amazing!
After lunch, we went high to look out of the tower and used telescopes then we went to the very bottom and saw some fish. Lastly, we saw the different boats from the past and monsters of the deep. Our favourite monsters were the unicorn and the mermaid. The jars of the sea creatures were cool.
We had a fabulous time and we are very happy to have gone.
