Tall Ships Project

20th March 2018

To celebrate the arrival of the tall ships into the local area and to increase children's understanding of local history we welcomed special visitors into school.  The Jack Ahoy Project delivered a theatre show to pupils about Jack Crawford, the heroic Sunderland sailor told by actors from No Limits Theatre company through the characters of seabirds and sailors. The story weaved fantasy with historical characters and facts to engage pupils, it was thoroughly enjoyed by all!
The theatre show was followed by a drama workshop in Y2 with No Limits Theatre to explore life on board a tall ship, with games, role play and drama activities. Y4 & Y5 pupils also completed an object handling session on a Maritime/Tall Ships theme with staff from Sunderland Museums.
