Year 2 visited the Herbert Art Gallery and found out what life was like during the Victorian era, as part of their topic 'Changes within Living Memory'. They explored Victorian toys and joined in with games similar to those played by Victorian children. They also dressed up as Victorians and pretended to be Queen Victoria and Prince Albert. Year 2 had a fantastic day and learnt a lot about Victorian childhood through first hand experiences.
Year 4 visited The Royal State Rooms at Buckingham Palace and the Royal Mews as part of their topic 'The Power of the Monarchy'. They learnt about who first bought the Palace, the changes that have been made and how the palace is used today. They were also able to see the different types of coaches that are used for special celebrations and understand some of the important jobs of people that work at the Royal Mews. They had a brilliant day, even though they didn't actually get to see the Queen!
Reception visited Warwick castle as part of their 'Castles, Knights and Princesses' topic. They explored a real castle, watched the 'Birds of Prey' show, met and listened to a story read by a Princess and visited the Grand Hall. We climbed to the top of the tower and were able to see the whole of Warwick, it was a great day out.
