Living museum


On Thursday afternoon, Year 5/6 created a living History museum for their parents to visit. They displayed their posters and presented the information to explain our learning from our Autumn term History unit, answering the question: Why was Baghdad a beacon of light in the Dark Ages? It was a great success and the children enjoyed sharing their work and creativity with their audience.

Lenny Henry explained why he wanted to be an author and how he came up with the ideas for his stories. He also read us a snippet of his latest two books aswell as sharing some jokes with us.
