History club

The history club at Portsdown Primary school have been invited to take over Fort Nelson for the day!

On our first visit we explored the gun room and drew the guns that inspired us.

At our first meeting we decided to come up with some ideas of what we would like to create for our exhibition for Fort Nelson. We decided that we wanted to recreate the Dragon gun, create cannon balls and labels for our exhibition.
On our second meeting we finished things off that we had started and we decided to create our very own cannon.
We went back to Fort Nelson to see our exhibition on display. The curator was very impressed, especially with our rusty cannons. The exhibition will be open to the public.
