The day we went to the Docklands

The day we went to the Docklands

We went with the school to the museum of Docklands.

At the Docklands we saw a large boat and we were surprised about how big it was.  We met the son of a former lighter man called Peter Daniel.

We acted out a play script about lightermen But we were not allowed to speak.

My group(Me , Alfie, Josh and Fabian.)In the play we rescued the soldiers at the beaches of Dunkirk. We went around the museum and we saw models of the boats and docks.

I learnt that the first bridge that was ever made was London Bridge. Also I learnt that Henry VIII was the founder of Watermen and Lightermen. In 1972 there was a strike because Watermen and Lightermen didn’t earn enough money, to afford any food for their family.
