Libraries Inspire Learning Report by Mehak

On the 10th March 2014, we went to Birmingham Library in town.After we jumped off the coach, we were taken to the library theatre , and were introduced to many presentations from Wheelers Lane Primary School. We were shown various selection of fantastic presentations: some about our school archives, some about reading ( what their favourite book was) and also a very creative presentation from Nicole,Chloe and Maddison- which was a about a popular singer, Bridgit Mendler.( they even did their own dance!) A few moments later we were then shown a incredible clip from Malala- who is a inspiration for all of us, as she opened this outstanding library. Because we had a very long time watching clips and presentations , we were given a snack which was some scrumptious biscuits. They were delicious!

After a lovely snack, we were split into two teams. One with Nikki and the other with Rachel- I was with Nikki. First of all we were taken to the ninth floor, by a lift with mirrors and 2 doors, to the Shakespeare  Room. We were told that it was made first from the old library. We were in this splendid room with beautiful wooden carvings decorated across the walls- it looked very gorgeous. As we were approaching back, we saw a man sleeping on of of the chair! If looked very awkward, but also very funny.

Once the whole class arrived, we were told to do some write some things on a piece of paper. The first step was to find evidence that long time ago in Paganel , kids use to sleep in beds. After a short time I found the picture, it was a row of rail beds with small head peeping out. After that was completed, the next step was to find a picture that you think is your favourite. MIne was a picture showing a group of girls, having a recorder in their hands ,It was my favourite because I play the recorder too.It`s a nice, fun instrument to play and easily learn. It was time to go.We had an exceptional day, with full of excitement and fun. It will become a delightful memory to remember.
