Year 4 Visit The Potteries Museum

Easy Blog Photo
Mr Hunt’s class had a lovely morning visiting the wonderful Potteries museum in Hanley. The children listened carefully to our expert Lisa, who told us all about the history of the Staffordshire hoard. She showed us magnified photographs to see the detail of pieces, we held replica pieces and then got to look at pieces of the Staffordshire hoard itself, up close! We then went to design our own Saxon helmets using repeated patterns inspired by the Hoard itself.

    What an amazing experience, to be able to get up close to The Staffordshire Hoard. Who knows, maybe in the future, some of our Year 4 children may be inspired now to become archaeologists.

    I had a great time with Year 4 looking at The Staffordshire Hoard. I’m glad you all enjoyed it. Thank you to my Sandford Hill Army for their hard work, excellent behaviour and charming manners. You are welcome back any time! From Lisa at The Potteries Museum and Art Gallery 🙂
