Year 4 History Walk Thursday

We walked into the city to look for clues that told us buildings were old. We went to Elm Hill, The Cathedral, St Peter Mancroft and St Andrews.

The walk was very tiring, but it was actually very interesting as well (Isla).

As you were walking through Elm Hill, if you looked at the roofs, you would notice that one of the roofs was different. It was thatched. (Lily)

If you looked at the old buildings, you would notice that the windows were wonky because they were old. (Alfie)

When we were walking in Elm Hill, we saw wobbly buildings because the wood was on the bottom of the bricks, and the bricks were too heavy, so the wood warped. (Kacper)

When we were walking in the Cathedral, on both gates there were lots of carvings. (Morgan)

The city wall used to be around the city, and the Strangers were people who lived outside of it. There is a broken bit of wall near where Toys R Us used to be (Troy, Aron, Lily).

There were loads of streets where we normally went to, but we didn’t know they were really old (Isla)
