Throughout this term we have been learning all about ships through history, from the magnificent longboats of the Vikings, the galleons of John Cabot and Christopher Columbus up to modern, sleek submarines. Through our themed learning we have learnt about how the world's maritime history has influenced and changed the British Isles and how we live.
As well as this, we looked at MacBeth by William Shakespeare. Using this play as a template, we have written our own playscripts, learnt new drama skills and developed our story writing techniques.
