The session was an excellent introduction to life of Victorian children in Hertford and will be useful to refer back to as we delve further into the subject.
Handling real fossils pieced together information that the children were aware of but had not fully understood; the activity was memorable and increased their knowledge.
The children now understand more about WWI and what life might have been like.
The children were very excited to see the replica artefacts and the discussions about archaeologists and archaeology will promote a love of history even more to them.
My pupils were most enthusiastic about handling real life objects. The session has inspired them to think more deeply about the topic of WWI. I will seek the support of outside agencies that are able to offer their skills and knowledge.
My favourite part was when we took the bone out of the box and it was heavy.
Thank you for letting us visit the museum and doing the activities with you. We had the best time.
