Year 1 Trip to Merrivale Model Village

Year 1 explored the Merrivale Model Village and Old Penny arcade to support their learning for their History topic of ‘Toys’. The children were fascinated by all of the detail on the models and the stories they were telling. They also got to experience an old fashioned penny arcade, and have a go at lots of interesting vintage arcade machines 🧸🪆

In the afternoon, they enjoyed a walk along the seafront to introduce next half terms topic ‘Beside the Seaside’.

All of the children were a credit to the academy, with a member of the public commenting that their behaviour was ‘impeccable’.

A big Thank You, goes to the Merrivale Model Village for their support with the trip and to their helpful staff who made the trip enjoyable for all 😁
