A visit to Manchester

The John Rylands Library was the destination for Years 5 and 6 as part of their focus on the Victorians. The Deansgate based Grade I Listed building provided a stunning setting for our pupils to take part in a workshop focused on maps from the Victorian era. Maps of tramways, waterworks, infectious diseases and drinking were explored by pupils. We then toured the exhibitions in the library and the children were very impressed with the Reading Room.

 In the afternoon there was time for a whistle stop sightseeing tour of Manchester including St Ann's Church, St Mary's The Hidden Gem Church, Lincoln Square, Albert Square and St Peter's Square! Pupils were surprised to learn just how many historic buildings and monuments Manchester houses.
