On Wednesday 9th May a group of 18 asylum seekers, several children in pushchairs and three English teachers (Margaret, Sue and Diane) made the short journey from Asha to the Potteries Museum. The visit was a resounding success and gave them all the opportunity to practice their English as well as to learn about the local area.
The asylum seekers spent time in the Natural History Gallery and learnt about some of the animals and birds which can be seen in and around Stoke on Trent. They found this very interesting and especially enjoyed taking photos of themselves with some of the animals, such as the fox and deer!
Afterwards they each had the opportunity to order a drink for themselves in the café where they enjoyed socialising with each other before returning to Asha.
They were surprised that the entrance to the Museum was free and a number of them said they would like to visit it again.
