This week a very exciting thing happened. We were asked to help Mrs Stott with identifying a mysterious box the builders found. We went out to see Dave and he gave us a very old looking muddy box. Once back in the classroom we looked carefully at the box and found an old map in it. Looking closely at the map we thought it came from the Roman era. We were shocked that the builders didn’t know much about the Romans so we decided to set up a museum to share what we are going to learn with everyone. We then came up with an action plan on how to create a museum, we decided in the end to email the British Museum to ask for advice. Here is an example of an email:
To the British museum,
Today the man in the digger (Mr Collins) was digging the surface of the new classroom until he came across something hard. It was this muddy old box that looked like it was from the Roman times. We came in the classroom and investigated a map from the box. We then thought that we should make our own museum. Please could you help us think of ideas and tell us what roles there are in a museum? We would really appreciate it.
