The Golden Hinde’s Drake’s Circumnavigation KS3 & KS4 Workshop
Get to grips with the history surrounding Francis Drake’s circumnavigation and uncover the challenges of life at sea in the 16th century!
Utilising interactive maps, replica handling sessions and a guided exploration of The Golden Hinde, Drake’s Circumnavigation is their most popular 1-hour programme for KS3/4.
Students will be asked to think critically about the motivations behind the voyage, before heading below deck to get a sense of the reality of early modern seafaring.
Pupils will also be provided with our pre and post-visit resources, designed to encourage them to get the most out of their visit.
- To understand the motivations behind Drake’s circumnavigation and its impact on the early modern world.
- To utilise the environment of the ship and its replica collection to gain a clear understanding of the difficulties and dangers faced by 16th-century mariners.
- To develop historical skills of enquiry, comparison, and debate.
