'I SPY' ACTIVITY TRAIL:
On Tuesday 27th September, Class 5 and their parents had the opportunity to be the first school group to try out the new 'I Spy Activity Trail'. The trail was created by Leicester City Council and experts at the University of Leicester who designed the activity for families. It allows children and adults to turn into detectives and learn about the historical features in the city centre, in a fun way.
The Heritage manager for Leicester schools, Mr. Ismail Dale joined Class 5 to lead the trip. All of the children, accompanying parents and teachers learnt something new and interesting about the history of Leicester. Mrs. Cox and Mrs. Amor (Class 5)
