Year 5 trip to the National Army Museum

Yesterday Year 5 went to the National Army Museum. When we got there we were split into two groups, one group had fifteen people in and the other group had fourteen people in. My group went first for the tour. We looked at a model of the battle field from the Battle of Waterloo. We saw the glove with blood stains on and the sword that chopped the leader of the Calvary’s leg off. The troops were split into flanks, one flank on the left, one on the right and the other in the middle. The Duke of Wellington had an advantage because the troops were uphill and Napolé- on was down hill plus the hill was muddy so the British won when the Prussians came to help. At the museum we played a game, we were on the winning team. We walked from the Museum to the Royal Hospital where we had lunch. After we watched a 11 minute film about the history of the Royal Hospital aka Chelsea Pensioners. We then did a dress up activity where we dressed up as soldiers. I chose the dark blue uniform which was a Sergeant. We knew it was a sergeant because of the stripes on the shoulder. I also wore a cap. We walked through the Royal Hospital grounds and we saw a lot of it. I realised I was wearing my red rain jacket so I took off my high viz jacket and pretended to be part of the army to have some fun. My favourite part of the day was being able to touch the canons that were used at the Battle of Waterloo in the Napoleonic war. We also got to see the crest from the war and the golden eagles that they captured.
