Yr3 trips to Salisbury Museum and Matron's College

Year 3 children have recently been out and about in The Close. Their postponed trip to the Matron’s College finally happened on a beautiful Autumn day. Miss Lamb kindly came too. The children filtered into the gardens where the ladies were assembled around the garden, eagerly anticipating the children’s visit. We got such a warm welcome and the children performed some fun songs outside, without accompaniment. Their audience loved hearing them sing and then enjoyed chatting to them. The children were gentle, polite and articulate with their elderly and interested hosts. There was time to explore the gardens, pond and historic washhouse and the children left smiling and waving at the ladies, promising them we would return soon, and we will.

The second visit was the launch of our History topic, which took us to the Salisbury Museum and our wonderful guide, Owain. The children listened carefully about animals which lived in the Stone Age, archaeologists and evidence. In groups they then were able to handle artefacts, some of which are over 6,000 years old! Touching the Woolly Mammoth’s molar was the favourite! After sketching and labelling, the children dressed in costume of the time and played a game, which they had invented using facts from the Stone Age. They are looking forward to more trips to the Museum and Stonehenge, both of which will further enhance their knowledge of this historic time.
