Year 5 are studying the Vikings and are planning to set up a working museum for parents and other children to visit. As a hook to their theme the intrepid archeologists ventured into ‘Pearls Land’ to look for any artefacts that could be linked to the vikings. They found several interesting objects!
On Wednesday January 17th they visited Exeter Museum to learn how a museum is presented. The children had to think about how the artefacts were diplayed, the information that accompanied them and whether it was relevant and engaging.
Back in the classroom the children are researching to discover how vikings lived and are in the process of making replica artefacts to display in their museum.
