Discovery Museum Visit Year 1 and Year 2

This week Year 1and Year 2 have been on an exciting trip to the Discovery Museum! Next week we will be starting our new topic learning about materials and mechanisms, so our trip has been a good introduction to our new topic. We visited examples of world firsts in transport including Charles Parson's Turbinia and Stephenson's steam engines, but the highlight of our trip was the unexpected exhibition - 'All the Fun of the Fair' looking at the history of the Hoppings funfair, first held on the Town Moor in 1882. The children absolutely loved playing with the vintage coin and pinball amusement machines using the old 2 penny coins to play! A lovely trip!
