Buckland Abbey History Trip

14th December 2016
Class 2 have been studying a local legend this term and today we went to Buckland Abbey to find out more information about him. Our topic focused on the enquiry: 'Who was Sir Francis Drake - a Pirate or a Privateer?' 
National Trust volunteers Mark and Jan were our fantastic guides for the day. They answered all our questions and told us all about the history of Sir Francis Drake's home.  We dressed up in Tudor costumes and sang a song from our Christmas performance by the Christmas tree.
Many National Trust staff and members of the public complimented the children on their behaviour, knowledge, interest and how nicely they looked after each other.  All the staff at Lamerton agreed - our pupils were a delight to take out.
