On Monday 26 September, in response to our unit of Inquiry: Where we are in Place and Time, Lower Prep headed out on their walking tour of Reading.
Many questions posed at school were answered as we walked under Caversham Bridge, over Christchurch Bridge and under Reading Bridge. Our next stop was Forbury Gardens, where the statue of the Maiwand Lion fostered much discussion. We then moved onto the iconic Abbey Ruins where the students finally got to see the remains of the buildings which were torn down by Henry VIII – something which had caught their interest at the beginning of their learning.
They were fascinated by the Banksy on the wall of the prison and are looking forward to recreating it in an Art lesson. A point of wonder: Why was it not painted in bright colours? Curiosity never ends in Lower Prep!
