It's starting to warm up a bit and that means that we're starting to venture outside a bit more. This week we've been looking at the food chain as part of our 'Who Eats What' workshop at Upton Country Park. However, we've also been helping children learn about the Victorian's which includes cooking pancakes on our old fashioned range (who doesn't love pancakes).
And then something a bit different but exciting happened yesterday. Do you remember a few weeks ago the children who wrote poems inspired by our objects? Then popped in yesterday to research Poole's hidden histories. The dark and dastardly piratical deeds of 'Arry Paye were uncovered, the last knocker upper was outed, the plague pits were unearthed (not literally thank goodness) and Poole's very own suffragette was celebrated. All this research was self-directed and will be made into a book. I can't wait.
And also. . .
A quick reminder that our Young Archaeologists Club meets this week to explore and find out about the Saxons. We have spaces for YAC, so get in touch if you're interested.
Our babies and toddlers group, Museum Music and Mime, also meets on Friday at 10.30. No need to book, just drop in.
