Years 1 and 2 have enjoyed an interesting trip to Saffron Walden Museum. Along the way we followed our map and added features and road names as we went.
Once at the museum we were particularly looking at the different stories that artefact labels can tell us - how old is an object, where does it come from, what is it made of, and who gave it to the museum. Some of us had visited before, but for many it was the first time and we all agreed that we wanted to return!
The sand pit was a clear favourite as we all enjoyed uncovering precious jewellery and golden coins. We now look forward to creating our own museum corners in our classrooms, contributing our own artefacts and writing our own labels.
