This week Y5/6 have been making visits into the City centre to visit significant sites linked with out topic: Hull’s fishing heritage. The aim of the trip was to pay tribute to the lives lost during the Triple Trawler Tragedy, and important event in the history of Hull and the school’s local community.
We started with the Big Lil mural on Midland Street – we’ll be learning about Big Lil’s impact soon!
Next, we visited the trawler memorial in Zebedee’s yard. The children laid a wreath in memory of the lives lost aboard the St Romans, Kingston Peridot and Ross Cleveland and observed a minutes silence.
Next we went to have a look at Hull’s last fishing trawler, the Arctic Corsair. It was amazing to see a real trawler up close!
Our next stop was Humber Street Gallery to see the real Dead Bod! We’ve been learning about this local legend and children have written short stories about it!
Our final stop was the ‘Knife Angel’, a towering sculpture made up of over 100,000 knives as part of the #NoMoreKnives campaign.
