Year 8 Visit the SS Great Britain and M Shed

Year 8 pupils travelled to the SS Great Britain and M Shed on Thursday 22nd June for an informative visit to learn about Isambard Kingdom Brunel's impact on Bristol and the transatlantic slave trade. Pupils explored the SS Great Britain Museum and had a guided tour from a professional historian.

The visit to M Shed allowed the pupils to gain a detailed appreciation of the effects of slavery on Bristol. Pupils found the visit most informative and commented that it was helpful to have a Bristol-centred approach to curriculum topics as it made them more relevant.
