Pupils from Years 1 & 2 at Castlewood School were out and about recently when they visited Brooklands Museum at Weybridge.
The children studied a variety of kinds of transport including riding on a penny farthing and sitting on an old-fashioned London bus.
They also saw more modern vehicles and were able to sit on board Concorde and take the driver’s seat in a Formula 1 car.
Esme from Year 1 said ,”I loved it on Concorde when I sat at the front near the window. I was a passenger. My favourite bit was in the room with the big aeroplanes.”
Vicky Dedman, Key Stage 1 leader commented, “Experiences like this enthuse the children especially when they can actually sit on board and drive. I know their work in class will be enhanced by this trip.”
The children will now use this visit to help them draw and write about their topic for the term.
