Trip to Liverpool

Lesson: History

Class: Y4 Year: 2022 - 2023

Today, Year 4 got on a coach and travelled to Liverpool. 

During our morning session, the children were taught all about how the River Mersey was used by people and how it enabled Liverpool to grow into such a massive city. We discussed how goods were transported by sailing ships and eventually huge cargo ships, and also discussed what types of cargo used to come in and out of the city using the river. We found that all sorts of goods were brought into the city from exotic animals like parrots and monkeys to china plates, tea and wool. 

After a quick 30 minutes for lunch, we marched across Liverpool to the World Museum. Here, we looked into one of our upcoming topics... The Egyptians. Our guide talked about how Egyptians mummified each other after they'd died. We even performed a mummification ceremony! (It wasn't for the faint-hearted!) As we were doing this, our guide explained about the importance of different Egyptian gods and Egyptian hierarchy within the process. 

As a staff, we were all extremely proud of the behaviour of year 4 and the manner in which they conducted themselves around the museums and through Liverpool itself. The children had an excellent time and seemed to enjoy the gory details of mummification in particularly!
