Y6 Visit to York Castle Museum

21 December 2017

On Tuesday 19th December Y6 visited the Castle Museum in York. This was linked to History work on WW1 and English work on 'A Christmas Carol'. The children explored the WW1 exhibits and followed the lives of several real characters through WW1. Leighlah tried applying a bandage to Marley's arm. The children asked the curator lots of questions about the artifacts on display linked to WW1. They then visited the Victorian street when several children took part in the retelling of 'A Christmas Carol'. Following this the children had a one hour workshop on how to make a Morse code machine, using their skills from science to construct a circuit that included a buzzer. We all had a great day at the museum.
