Our F4 students have been reflecting on their visit to Barrio Peñarol in Montevideo as part of their research into their unit of inquiry – How we organise ourselves.
The children were learning about the legacy of the early British settlers and searching for evidence of what they left behind.
They clearly understood and advanced their learning by visiting the train station and ticket office in its traditional design, the manager’s large residence and garden, several workshops and the ‘British style’ brick houses that the workers lived in.
We had a full morning and asked our knowledgeable guide, Manuel, lots of questions. It was a very informative and enjoyable visit.
