This week 2HL went on our long awaited school trip to Leeds city centre. The children were so excited to link their learning in topic lessons to the actual city. After catching the bus into Leeds we took a short walk to the museum where we learnt more about the life of Leeds from the 1800’s to present as well as sketch some Broderic buildings that we could see.
We then visited millennium square and town hall before having some well deserved lunch!
In the afternoon we took a stroll down one of Leeds oldest streets, Briggate, and saw all the fancy shops, cafes and even listened to some pleasing music! Then we reached what the children had been looking for all day- the River Aire! We took a look at the buildings around the bridge and compared to those that used to be there.
Finally we went to the Corn Exchange before catching the bus back to school. What a busy day we had!
