The Golden Hinde’s Daytime Living History KS2 Workshop
The Golden Hinde’s 3-hour, flagship programme for KS2!
Step back in time and get ready to set sail as you and your students become the crew of the Golden Hinde and experience life as a 16th-century mariner through hands-on activities and immersive role-play.
Dressed in Elizabethan costume, three colourful characters from the ship’s history will guide you and your students about the ship and teach you the skills required to sail on a galleon. With lurid tales of letting and limb removal from the grisly Barber Surgeon, lightning-quick gun drills with the excitable Gunner and mastery of the navigational arts with the ship’s Master, Day Living Histories are full of excitement and rich with learning opportunities.
30 minutes of the session is allocated for students to eat lunch aboard the ship. Students will also be provided with their pre and post-visit resources, designed to encourage them to respond critically and creatively to get the most out of their visit.
- To find out about the history of Francis Drake and his 1577-80 circumnavigation of the world.
- To gain a deep understanding of the day-to-day life on an Elizabethan ship and how it differs from their own experiences.
- To understand how primary source evidence informs our knowledge of the past.
- To develop skills of comparison, enquiry and communication.
- To develop creative writing and drawing skills.
