Mary Rose impresses Block 3s

During the penultimate week of term Block 3 went on a Science and History visit to the Mary Rose Museum, which opened recently in Portsmouth Dockyard. The day was spent in the museum as well as in the new education centre, where the scientific and the historical theories as to why the ship sank were analysed. The museum itself has received a lot of publicity and it lived up to all our expectations: students had an hour and a half to explore, but they could have spent far longer. The sun shone and the day provided a relaxing, intriguing and interesting break after the rigours of the Block 3 exams.
