The City of Liverpool gave Years 5 and 6 a warm welcome on their 2 visits in June.. A fabulous time was had by all. The youth hostel was a great base and so busy with schools from other parts of Cumbria and Europe. During our stay we met children from Poland and France. The staff commented on our fantastic manners and were very complimentary about our good behaviour.
During our stay we visited the Maritime Museum, Museum of Liverpool, the Cathedrals, (Year 6 visited St James and Year 5 the Metropolitan). We also visited the Tate Art Gallery where we discussed and analyzed some modern, very unusual pieces!
In the evenings we went on the Big Wheel, and some of us just closed our eyes! Then we walked around historical Liverpool. Our final evening was spent at the Odeon Cinema. The food and packed lunches at the hostel were just fabulous.
On our way home we called into Anfield for a tour and museum visit. We were allowed to wear our football shirts. However we celebrated the game itself and thanked Liverpool for hosting us. What a great stay - we walked all around the city. One of the Year 5s suggested that we put scooters on the kit list next time!
