On 18th November, Elementary 2 visited the Transport Museum in Covent Garden.

Travelling through the 'time machine' the children went back to 1800 to learn about how people in London travelled, using horse drawn 'buses'.

They laughed on hearing about the mountain of horse manure that had to be dealt with! They sat in a carriage with 'people' (dressed-up dummies) and wished each other in the style of the times as the workshop teacher showed them.

As the 20th century was reached, they explored the new means of transport using steam engines, trams and
electricity.

It was a fun day and enjoyed thoroughly.
