On Thursday 5th December, Stamford Bridge class took a trip to The Lincoln Life Museum as part of their topic work on the past and the present.
Throughout the term, the class have been studying the early 20th Century such as WW1 & WW2. This included what food, clothing, toys, schools or planes may have looked like. The pupils have focused especially on transport, housing, schools, and inventions that were made, such as tea bags, canned goods and daytime saving.
On arrival at the museum, the class found a suitable area that was safe and not too crowded, where they could leave their belongings and engage with set activities. With the help of Miss Hamilton, Mrs Scarlett and Mrs Keltgen, the pupils worked together to explore different areas of the museum which contained different set ups such as a school classroom, a police cell, Victorian artefacts and transport for example steam engines, tanks and carriages. Whilst at the museum, the class also looked through some WW1 & WW2 artefacts including uniforms, medals, pin badges, letters and weapons, used all those years ago.
The pupils used key knowledge and facts they had previously learnt about, to support them when engaging in set activities. Everyone got involved and after all of their hard work, amazing feedback was provided about how polite, well-mannered and helpful the pupils all were.
At the end of the trip before returning to school, the pupils were able to help Miss Hamilton purchase some new books for their classroom for their future topic work, from the museum’s fantastic gift shop.
Well done Stamford Bridge!
