1987 ~ Class 3's London Topic


Over the Autumn Term 1987 Class Three took a careful look at central London, 
how it originated during Roman times, how it developed, and some of its 
important buildings and their contribution to our national heritage.  

Over the term there were six visits:

  • Tuesday 15th September - a general introduction to the City and the West End, including many of the major 'sites'.

  • Wednesday 30th September - a trip down to Greenwich on the River Thames, including the Royal Observatory.

  • Friday 23rd October - The Tower of London.

  • Tuesday 3rd November - Tour of the Palace of Westminster in the morning and Westminster Abbey in the afternoon.

  • Thursday 19th November - Tour of St Paul's Cathedral and then to the National Portrait Gallery

  • Tuesday 8th December - St Bartholomew's Priory; map reading to get to the Museum of London, followed by a 'surprise'.

Sadly, only a few photographs of these visits have come to light so far.
