Letter from Mrs Deverill

Year 5 had a nautical treat from Miss Brown who shared her love of sailing with us. Children were able to cheer on their teachers as they dressed to impress in the appropriate sailing attire. We also learnt about rope tying, safety equipment and explored the parts of a boat with their purposes. It was inspiring to hear about the local sailors from Poole who have gone onto sail around the world and win competitions! It's amazing to hear that there have been more people in space than there have been to sail across the whole world! We're so excited to continue to learn about sailing in our new book this term as we explore Kenzuke's Kingdom in English.
