Year 1 Manchester Museum of Transport

What a busy couple of weeks we have had since returning to school. Our topic for this half term is a history focus, looking at how transport has changed over time. So far we have looked at how trains and boats have changed and been developed over the years. On Wednesday we had our school trip to the Museum of Transport in Manchester. The Museum tells the story of public road transport in Greater  Manchester from its very beginnings in 1824 to the present day. The children thoroughly enjoyed learning how buses have changed over the years. We also learned how uniforms and ticket machines have     developed too. A highlight of the day was getting to eat our lunch on one of the old buses and an old tram!
