Noah’s Ark Cobham Close

On Thursday 10th October Noah’s Ark Cobham Close went on our first trip of the academic year to the London Transport Museum. The sun was shining as we met in Covent Garden before going into the museum to learn all about the history of the city’s transport. First we sat down with one of the workers at the museum, who told us all about the different types of transport in London. We were able to hold a real steering wheel, put on a bus driver’s hat and pretend to toot the horn! We also talked about the different sounds that we hear in London, not only those made by transport, but the sounds we can hear from animals too. We had a great time making the noises of each animal! Next we made our own London Underground map together by colouring in tracks between the stations. This helped us learn that there are different underground train lines and they all have different names.
Finally, and best of all, we went to explore the whole museum. There were all sorts of new and old buses, trains and even horse-drawn carriages. Some of them we could climb into and sit down on the seats, pretending we were off to Camden Town or Knightsbridge for a spot of shopping at Harrods! The favourite exhibit was the moving model train that we could run alongside and see if we could beat to the other end of the museum. It was a fantastic trip and we loved it. Thanks to all the mums and other helpers that made it such an enjoyable and worthwhile experience.
