WE ARE GOING ON A BOAT

ident colour.jpg

What is it called?

It is called the Beatrice

What kind of Boat is Beatrice?

It is a NARROW BOAT

What is it like inside?

Beatrice has a toilet, a small kitchen for teachers, and big windows so you can see everything

Can we sit outside?

If it's not raining there is a deck to sit on

Where does Beatrice go?

It cruises on the Caldon Canal, which is very beautiful. Beatrice goes up and down the locks

What is a lock?

Locks are like stairs, they are used to take boats up and down hills.

You will go up 3 locks, and later you will come down them again.

What is it like in the locks?

It's fun and very safe

Can we help with the locks?

If your teacher says you can, yes.

But you must wear a life jacket.

There are bridges to see

and perhaps a tunnel

Will we see any birds?

There are herons - and ducks

and sometimes swans - and even kingfishers

We hope that you enjoy your trip on the Beatrice
