'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)
The trip was featured in the Leicester Mercury and on BBC Radio Leicester. Please see the links below.
We have worked closely with English Heritage over the past three years in a number of exciting projects.
Our association began through our regular use of Leicester New Walk Museum and gaining a two year grant from English Heritage to promote a greater understanding of historical development.
Each event has involved children and parents including:
- A visit to Coventry Cathedral and the RAF Museum at Brize Norton (linked with the Michael Morpurgo book “Elephant in the Garden”.)
- Developing the Richard III exhibition and explaining DNA at Leicester University.
- In-school workshops on the Holocaust.
- Visits to Burrough on the Hill Iron Age Fort.
- Staff workshops on archaeology and Stone Age Britain.
