As part of our history topic, a very excited Team AC visited Barnsley Museum to find out about the similarities and differences between the Stone Age, Bronze Age and Iron Age. The children were able to find out answers to our key questions through hands on experiences and workshops. They had many questions and were able to talk about their day by means of a recount. Children learned new vocabulary to help with their understanding and could see how ‘The Stone and Metal Ages’ followed chronologically.
The children also had chance to explore the other historical eras throughout the museum and see how Barnsley had changed throughout history. They enjoyed finding out about Barnsley’s rich mining history and how children as young as eight would be sent down the mines through small, dark tunnels in very dangerous conditions. They linked this to the life of children in the bronze age, who had to collect the copper from the mines. The children had a very interesting and informative day to extend their understanding of life through history.
