About

Learn the ropes of Elizabethan seafaring in The Golden Hinde’s flagship programme for KS3 & KS4.

Hands-on, and jam-packed with activities, students are encouraged to develop a deep understanding of the workings of a 16th-century ship to add colour to their understanding of key historical events.

Through a number of short workshops, students will be encouraged to utilise the environment of the ship and its replica collection to uncover more about a variety of aspects of maritime life including raising the anchor, the living conditions, navigation, gunnery and medicine.

The Tudor Maritime workshop can focus either on Francis Drake’s circumnavigation or the 1588 Armada and students will utilise their new understanding to help them tackle the big historical questions surrounding these topics.

Students will also be provided with their pre and post-visit resources, designed to encourage them to get the most out of their visit.

 

Learning Objectives (Circumnavigation focus)

  • 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 deep understanding of the difficulties and dangers faced by 16th-century mariners.

Learning Objectives (Armada focus)

  • 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 and how they relate to the 1588 Armada.
  • To develop historical skills of enquiry, comparison and debate.
