Year 3's Trip to Bury Fusilier's Museum

Lesson: History

Class: Year 3 Year: 2016 - 2017

Year 3 visited the Bury Fusilier's Museum to learn all about what happened to Salford during World War 1. This linked really well with our Local History topic that we are working on at the moment. We learnt all about a boy called Charlie and his sister and what happened to them both during the war, we met Sergeant Dalton, acted in his show and learnt all about what kit was needed at war. We were also lucky enough to handle real life artifacts like gun shells, a grenade and beautiful postcards, as well as visiting a trench and smelling all the dreadful smells. 
Year 3, Teachers and Helpers thoroughly enjoyed ourselves, so much so that if you see us around school please ask us about all the incredible things we've learnt.
