On Wednesday 5th October, year 3 set off on a quest to discover the legendary secrets of St Michael’s Mount. Arriving at Marazion, our intrepid explorers headed for the tiny passenger boats with nervous excitement bubbling in their tummies. The sea was choppy, which made for an exciting ride! On arriving safely on the Mount we headed into the grassy picnic area and together we told the story of Tom and the giant. Our task today was to discover the legend of another Cornish giant: Cormoran. We spent the morning looking for evidence that the Mount was built by a lazy, boulder throwing, cattle-munching giant whose life was cut short by a brave lad from Marazion.
After lunch, we toured the castle and found out a bit more about the residents of the Mount after the giants had departed. Soon it was time to head back to the mainland via the Giant’s Causeway, bathed in Autumnal sunshine.
Thank you to year 3 for making your first educational visit at SIJS a truly positive and memorable experience!
