School trip on May
6 July 2012
The winner of last year's primary school category of our Photography Competition was Leila Webb, from Barham C. E Primary School in Canterbury.
Leila's image entitled 'Chatham dockyard boatbuilding shed' won her the prize of a trip on an historic vessel.
21 pupils and 4 teachers from Year 5 at Barham Primary School joined us on Wednesday 4 July for a trip on National Historic Fleet vessel May. The class have been studying rivers as their topic this term and they used the trip to consolidate their learning.
May left Greenwich pier at 11.45 and travelled down to the North Greenwich arena, before turning round and heading up the Thames. She returned to Greenwich pier at 14.15. The highlight was to pass underneath Tower Bridge which was raised twice for the historic vessel.
Alison Webb, one of the party's teachers said: "It was a wonderful day and something we will be talking about for months."
