Year 4 Southampton Trip


On Thursday 2nd November, Year 4 went to Southampton to explore the walls and then travelled along the docks, on a boat trip.


We had a fantastic day, we started the day with a tour of the walls. We found out about the wine and wool trade and how it was so important to Southampton. We also learned that the King taxed the traders by taking one in every ten barrels of wine imported.

Then we got on the Blue Funnel boat and went for a trip up Southampton Water. We looked at the port of Southampton and saw how the boats were loaded with cars, fruit, vegetables and so much more.
