Early Years

Self-Led resource: Captain Scallywag’s Scavenger Hunt

Take part in Captain Scallywag’s Scavenger Hunt, guide your group around the ship looking for certain objects, watch out for those pesky rats!

Self-Led resource: Sensory Suitcases

Our themed Sensory Suitcases are available to pre-book and are filled with stories, songs, games and sensory handling objects to complement your self-led visit. Themes available: Pirates, Ship Cats or Seashore.

Self-Led Visits

Only £1 per pupil and accompanying adults go free! Pupils must be supervised at all times. (Self-led visits are normally allocated a 60 min slot).

Guided Tours

Find out about the different phases of The Tall Ship’s long and adventurous life and learn about the life of a sailor at sea on a tall ship!   All guided tours are accompanied with our sensory tour kit bags at no additional charge.  The kits include objects used to engage the senses and enhance children's learning and understanding.  These are particularly useful for ASN participants.

The Lunch of the Lighthouse Keeper

In this exciting sensory workshop children meet a costumed Mrs Grinling and Hamish the cat to read ‘The Lighthouse Keeper’s Lunch’ and hear about the life and role of a lighthouse keeper before making either their own seagull puppet, iced sea biscuits or model lighthouse to take home with them. Activities include storytelling, role play, object handling and crafts. Children will then explore the ship in a teacher led hunt searching for hidden mice.

Mermaids and Sea Creatures with Sailor Sally

Children join a costumed Sailor Sally to hear about her adventures on the high seas and encounters with the creatures that live in them, followed by a chance to make their own mermaid or merman. Activities include storytelling, role play, object handling, songs and crafts. Children will then explore the ship in a teacher led hunt searching for all of the hidden mice.

Jock the Cat and the Pirate Mice

Children learn about the adventures of Jock, our ship’s cat as he saves Glenlee from some troublesome pirate mice. Activities include dressing up, role play and pirate songs. Children will then become mini-rodent inspectors as they take part in a teacher led mouse hunt around the ship and finish in the cargo hold interactive play area.
