Form 4 recently paid a visit to York as part of their studies. The City is steeped in history and our workshops at the Minster and The Yorkshire Museum, took the children from Roman times to modern day York.
We had expert guides taking us on a tour of the Minster, teaching us about its troubled past, the various phases of development and what they are doing to conserve this magnificent building.
At the Yorkshire Museum, our workshop brought the conflicts over York to life and we had a chance to dress up as various settlers/conquerers from throughout the ages.
Following a busy day, we enjoyed a terrific tea at Pizza Hut before heading back out to the Minster to join our guide for the Ghost Walk.
Whilst some of the tales were a little scary, we learnt a lot about aspects of Yorks’ history that perhaps are not top of the list for covering in the curriculum. It truly is a fantastic City.
All of the children were brilliantly behaved and represented the school well. It was a truly enriching day for all.
