Year 2 Visit Ellesmere Port Boat Museum

11th June 2015

With its stunning location on the banks of the Mersey and the Manchester Ship Canal, extensive indoor displays, boat trips and historic buildings, the museum made a ideal destination for our Year 2 historians. 

To all the helpers at Ellesmere Port

Thank you for helping us at Ellesmere Port. My favourite part of the trip was when the other group came out of a room with dressing up clothes on them from old families – the Berry family, the White family, the Smith family and the Green family.

The funniest part was when I dressed up as Steve the Spiv. I wore a black shirt, a grey leather jacket (which was too big) and I held a brown suitcase. A spiv is a person who steals things and sells them and charges more than they are worth. When we went into the canal boat the most surprising thing was that they didn’t have a toilet. They had a pot!

For lunch I had 4 ham and cheese sandwiches, a smoothie, an apple and a biscuit. It was really nice. In the shop at the end I bought a toy furry hedgehog. I sat next to Jessica and Tara.

Thank you. I have had lots of fun and I had a lovely day.

From Kitty (Year 2)
