Fantastic Educational Visit!

We had an amazing day at the Quayside on Thursday. When we arrived at St Mary’s Heritage Centre, we were greeted by Richard ‘That History Bloke’. He showed us lots of photographs of what it was like on the Quayside in 1854. We got to act out all of the sounds that would have been heard, especially on the night of October 6th 1854. We really enjoyed our drama activity where our parent helpers were the cloth factory and warehouse and we were the houses. We had a great time learning about this but the children were also sad to learn about the people who killed by the explosions and fire. Thank you to Richard for a brilliant tour!
We spent the second part of our visit at The Sage. We were given a tour of Sage One and Sage Two  then we got to interview an artist as part of the first stage of our arts award. We then got to reflect on what we had been learning about and the best part of our visit. Thank you to the Sage for being so accommodating.
