On 3rd October, Year 2 visited Torquay Museum as part of our Learning Journey. We have been learning about 'A day in the life of a monarch' and we would like to find out how a museum works, so that we can have our own museum in our classroom next half term. We found out what a curator does, we labelled and catalogued objects to help the museum and we held some old and delicate objects.
' I liked going up all the stairs to the special room and seeing the tiny cook book and the small portrait in a necklace.'
' We got to draw a picture of what we thought was interesting. We saw old toys, fossils and animal bones.'
' I really liked looking at the mummy of a little boy that they have at the museum. It was so interesting!'
' I enjoyed going in the room where they keep all of the objects and wearing a glove to hold the old coins.'
