On Monday 4th February, staff took 50 Year 7 pupils to Bath to visit the Roman Baths and Bath Abbey. This trip was undertaken to compliment the work they had already done in their history lessons on the Romans and the work that they would be doing on the middle Ages.
The journey was quick and we arrived in Bath on time. Firstly, we went to the Roman Baths and the pupils all took part in a teaching session that allowed them to get hands on with objects that had been created by the Romans and found in Bath. The pupils then had a tour of the bath complex and learnt about the various activities that happened in them as well as the infrastructure used to fill the baths.
After a quick lunch, we moved over to Bath Abbey to learn about the importance of religion to people in the Middle Ages. The pupils were able to walk around the abbey and see the wonderful architecture within the Abbey. They were then taken on a guided tour above the abbey including the bells and all the way to the top of the tower with a panoramic view of Bath where many photos were taken. We then descended the 200 steps back down and returned to the bus, arriving back in Kidderminster around 6pm. Special thanks goes to the staff members who came on this trip and the pupils who were excellently behaved throughout.
