How has Birmingham had an impact on the world?
On Friday 18th November, Year 5 visited Birmingham City Centre to learn more about Matthew Boulton and the Industrial Revolution.
After an exciting trip on the train, we arrived at Snow Hill Station at 9:45am not far from where Matthew Boulton grew up.
Then we walked to Broad Street where we located the statue of Boulton, Watts and Murdoch.
Here we did observational drawings of the statue into our sketchbooks and we gathered facts about the inventors. It was very sunny!!
Then we headed back to New Street where we stopped for lunch at Birmingham Museum and Art Gallery.
Finally, we explored BMAG and enjoyed tours around their Birmingham People and Places exhibition and Birmingham History exhibition. We learned about how Birmingham has changed over the years including details about the Industrial Revolution.
After all of that we made our way back to Snow Hill station where we got a train back to Yardley Wood. Wow…. what a day!
