On Friday 7th March Year 5 had a school trip to The Golden Hinde. We were told about how the ship would have worked and how Sir Francis Drake and his crew lived.
My favourite part of the trip was when we found out about the punishments and about Sir Francis Drake.
The punishments were mean and disgusting. For example, if you committed mutiny on board you would be murdered. Thomas Doughty committed mutiny but, as he was an important member of the crew, he was allowed to choose his death.
If you swore on ship or said bad things about religion, you had your tongue chopped off and if you stole something you would have your hand chopped off.
