Class 5 visit St Michael’s Mount, Marazion

In connection with our Geography topic on Island Homes, Class 5 headed off on the minibuses to St. Michaels Mount. It was a beautiful sunny day and we were able to walk across the cobbled causeway to the island where we met our guides who led us up to the once Monastery, former garrison and now family home.

We heard the story of Jack and how he slayed Cormoran the giant, fired the cannons and explored the castle and church. The children were brilliant detectives searching and identifying evidence of the three different types of people who have lived on the top of the island.

After a well deserved lunch, we were able to watch the tide come in and cover the causeway. We thought it a bit cold to swim, so with much excitement we caught the boat back!

It was a fantastic day out, giving the children a true taste of what it would be like to live on an island. We also received some lovely comments from other visitors and the staff on their excellent behavior, well done Class 5!

I was scared of going on the boat but it was brilliant, I want to go again – Immy
