Parents and Grandparents of Y2 children were invited into the ’20th Century Museum’ this Friday. After looking at items loaned from the Discovery Museum, the children researched an artefact in readiness to be an expert. They even wore stickers stating “Ask me. I’m an expert”. After being welcomed at the door by Sonny and Sophie, our visitors were informed about each artefact and then invited to write anything that they could remember about it. Lots of items brought back happy memories for our visitors, though the Spice Girls video (20 years old) made a lot of us feel very aged!
The feedback from our visitors was very positive and the children also have lots more information to use in their history topic.
