Year 2 Class Trip - London Transport Museum

 

This term have been looking at the History of Transport in Topic and thus went on a trip to the London Transport Museum on the 25th September. The children partook in a workshopped called 'Platform Promenade'. Here they entered the museum's time travelling machine and embarked on an investigative journey through the Museum to discover the differences between types of vehicles and how people travelled in the past.
