Victorian Times at Reading Museum!

On Tuesday 15th March, Wrens and Woodpeckers got out of the classroom and got to do some learning at Reading Museum. On their return to school, Wrens wrote some recounts of our day out of class.

On Tuesday, Wrens and Woodpeckers went on a school trip. We went on a coach to Reading museum.
First, we looked around the museum. We saw some broken bowls and some old rings. My favourite part was dressing up because it was fun. - Nancy
