Our time at Fort George By Sophie

On Tuesday we went to Fort George. First we had looked at the old things from the museum then we had a tour around the battlements with Mr Cain. When we came back from Fort George we had a talk about what we learnt and our favourite things about the trip.  Today we have all written them on our chrome books and here they are:

Imogen:

My favourite thing about fort George  was how a lighter saved a man’s life because

the bullet hit the lighter instead of the man and it was so cool.

I learnt that in the gas masks their is Asbestos and they were really hard to breath in. 

 

Abbie:

My favourite bit of our trip to fort George was expecting it to be not nice and rainy and it turning out to be beautiful and sunny.

Something cool that i learnt at fort George was that in the room that they kept gunpowder the floorboards where held down with wooden pegs instead of metal nails because their boots had metal bits on them, and if the metal on their boots hit the metal nails it could spark and set everything alight.

My favourite thing about fort George was going to the museum and seeing the old letter box that used to be Hitler’s old box.  I learnt that the Victorian cross was so small.

My favourite part of the trip was looking at the cannons on the battlements.

The most interesting thing was that the Victorian cross  was very small and looked quite simple because it is supposed to mean that anyone can win one.
