With the concert to look forward to in the afternoon, there was the whole morning to take in a museum and enjoy lunch on the famous Albert Docks. Having studied Apartheid recently, there was a relevance to visiting the International Museum of Slavery. Once there, we found a wealth of information about Africa and the people of Africa before exploring the very moving and tragic stories of the slave trade. The museum has a further 2 exhibitions which we were able to indulge in too. First, a very informative, and fun, visit to the Titanic museum, including a chance to dress up as the ship’s captain or a person of high society! This was followed by an insight into the underworld of smuggling. Here pupils could explore life size models of smuggling tunnels and the conditions on a smugglers ship.
Accompanied by some noisy seagulls, we enjoyed our lunch by the docks before it was time to make the short journey to The Philharmonic Hall. The concert was both entertaining and informative, and had our pupils captivated by these world class musicians. The orchestra took us on a tour round the world with music from a host of different nations but had the very current theme of ‘British Values’ at it’s core. With the opportunity to sing and dance, it really was an experience our pupils will never forget.
