Our visit to the Discovery

Today we visited the Discovery ship in Dundee to find out more about Captain Scott's first expedition to the Antarctic.  We were given a guided tour around the ship where we found out lots of interesting facts.  We were able to look closely at the living quarters of the crew.

Then we took part in a workshop where we were able to compare the clothes that Scott would have worn in the Antarctic to clothes that explorers would wear now.  This was great fun as we got to dress up!

After lunch, we looked around the visitor centre.  Some of us went into the theatre to watch a short film.  We had a brilliant day out.  A big thank you to all the staff at Discovery Point.

Today Mrs Stewart told us the thrilling story of Scott's first journey to Antarctica, aboard the Discovery.  We looked at this powerpoint she had made.  Some of us wondered why all the pictures were in black and white!

We started to illustrate slides for our own powerpoint.  Some children worked on recording their voices on the computer for a Voicethread about the Discovery.  We will post this once it is finished. 

This website has a lot of interesting pictures: www.nzaht.org/AHT/HistoryEvans/

We are really looking forward to our visit to the Discovery in Dundee tomorrow!
