Year 1 Fieldtrip 2

Filed under: School,School trips — scotsabroad @ 7:53 am

A classroom without walls in year 1 at the moment as we ventured downtown to visit the Railway Museum. The children spent a wonderful hour exploring this treasure as part of their unit of inquiry about transport systems. Lucas had his best friend back and the pair of them climbed over everything, pulled every lever, turned every handle and left their fingerprints on every display case.

Lucas says, Yesterday we went to the Railway museum. We got to climb on trains. We saw a Ramadan train that had decorations on it. We rang a bell on the train. Me and Finn liked the black and white train best because you could move a lot of stuff and climb on it. We saw ancient Egyptians pulling a statue on logs. We saw a donkey and cart, a horse and cart, an aeroplane that you could see inside and a propellor. We saw a model train track with toy trains. I would give this trip 5 stars as well. The museum was fantastic.



  1. I agree Lucas – the museum sounds fantastic having all the things you could touch and levers to pull. Perhaps the new Glasgow Transport museum – once it is ready to open next year will be a bit like the one you visited where there are things to do.
    A very good field trip. Thanks for telling us about your day. x
