Tuition Club Children Visit Various Museums During Activities Week!
Last week our home-schooled students enjoyed a week of well-deserved fun activities which were both educational and entertaining.
The week started off with a trip to the Museum of Science and Industry in Manchester.
The children got to explore the different types of objects and world changing ideas.
They visited the world’s oldest surviving passenger railway station and the world’s first railway warehouse, built in 1830.
They enjoyed the live demonstrations of historic working machinery as well as taking part in some of the fun science shows which was an enjoyable experience for all.
Another group visited the Imperial War Museum in Manchester.
Some of the children got to experience a walk through a timeline of history from the First World War to the present day.
They got to explore a vast collection of over 2,000 objects within the museum and have a look at the various exhibitions onsite.
On Wednesday some of our children visited the Museum of Transport in Manchester.
Through the guided tour the children got to learn about the story of public road transport in Greater Manchester from its very beginnings in 1824 to the present day.
The children got to view the collection spans over 100 years, from an 1890s horse bus to a full-size prototype Metrolink tram.
