Y2 Elm Visit to Bury Transport Museum History
On a wet and rainy Wednesday morning this week, we all set off on our Double Decker bus to Bury Transport Museum. The journey there was very exciting because as we were heading to Haslingden the snow began to fall and all 29 children were so happy ! They were all a little disappointed we didn’t stop to play in it because we were on a tight schedule to arrive for a fantastic day at the museum.
We loved spending time with our Leaders Sarah and Keith who welcomed us to the museum .
We started by making model vehicles before the really exciting part .... going to look at the buses, coaches and steam tractors. Keith really enjoyed showing us the buses , and he showed us a horse drawn tram from Manchester which was 140 years old.
We were so lucky to be able to sit on an old double decker bus that had been restored before finding a spot for our delicious lunch .
After lunch we got to explore the museum , including dressing up, investigating how a steam engine works and the museum even has a model railway which was kindly switched on by one of the museum staff. Elm class were amazed by all the different engines on different tracks.
Thanks to our parent helpers Mrs Wray Mrs Eccles and Mrs Dow for volunteering their time. We look forward to going again soon !
