Visit to Gloucester Docks

We went to Gloucester Docks and the Waterways Museum. We learnt about building a canal.

We explored the museum.

We learnt about the best shape for making a boat and tested it to see how much weight it would hold.

We went on a boat down the canal and had our lunch. We saw a swan with cygnets and watched the bridges swing and lift open.

We dressed in clothes that the canal people used to wear and lifted heavy sacks using different pulleys.
