Year 6 take a trip to the Royal Engineers Museum!
Year 6 have had a fantastic day visiting the Royal Engineers Museum yesterday, taking part in two workshops. They were given 4 suitcases and a satchel and they worked in small groups to identify who the artefacts belonged to. Each suitcase gave us an insight into a person's life during World War Two. During the second workshop, the children developed their understanding of the Make Do and Mend initiative during World War Two and even had a chance to create their own rag rug.
They also explored the museum itself and could understand what life was for people living during different wars throughout history and opportunities for dressing up in the different eras were available throughout the walk around the museum. Outside they viewed the armoured vehicles.
We even met the Mayor of Medway and the Sheriff on our trip!
