Piccadilly and Kensington class went for a local walk to explore the famous landmarks in the area. This was to prepare both classes to write a London travel guide by visiting and gathering facts about some of the city’s landmarks.
About the walk
The walk took both classes to the Barbican Estate and then to Postman’s Park. In Postman’s Park the children had the chance to look at the memorial to members of the public who had sacrificed themselves to save others in London. After this the children got to briefly look at and learn about St Paul’s Cathedral before heading to Bunhill Fields Burial Ground, where we found the graves of poets Daniel Defoe and William Blake.
Prior Weston experience
Our children had a fantastic time, learning about the area in which they live and about the historical significance of some landmarks which they walk past daily. The walk gave our children an appreciation of The area in which they live and it’s wider significance within the city of London. The trip also allowed them to gain a knowledge of the history all around them.
