Rural Life Museum Trip
Acorns visit the Rural Life Museum in Glastonbury.
On Thursday 17th March, Acorns enjoyed a enjoyed a trip to the Rural Life Museum in Glastonbury. This trip was extra exciting as some of the younger children had never been on a bus before, let alone a school trip
When the children arrived at the museum, they were lead into an interactive welcome talk. They were even given the the opportunity to dress up as Victorians.
Next the children were split into two groups to carry out workshops before swapping over, giving everyone the chance to do both activities. One of the workshops was cooking traditional drop cakes, some delicious goodies that look similar to pancakes. This task focused on learning about traditional foods of the Victorian era as well as encouraging recipe reading. The other workshop was rug making. The children used strips of material to weave into some hessian to create an old fashioned rug. This focused on the importance of recycling fabric as well as developing the children's fine motor skills.
In the afternoon, all of the children enjoyed a tour of the museum and filling out an activity booklet.
What a busy but fun day Acorns had!
