On Wednesday 15th November, a group of Year 8 students had a wonderful day at the John Rylands library in Manchester.
The John Rylands library is one of the finest libraries in the world. Utterly amazed, our students toured the library and looked at some of the oldest books and manuscripts in the world. Soaking up the atmosphere as they toured the building, looking at architectural features and examining the beautiful carvings on the stonework.
Rising to the challenge, using their notes and experiences from the tour, the students produced exciting examples of Gothic writing. Later in the afternoon, students visited Waterstones bookshop and chose a selection of books for the library.
As a follow up, students will be reading and writing a review of their chosen books for other students to read.
If you’d like to visit this unique and outstanding building tours are available to book via their website.
