The children of Notley Green enjoyed welcoming family and friends to see the historical learning that had taken place in the first half of the Autumn term as part of our annual Notley Green Museum.

Our annual event invites parents and carers to learn more about different historical eras and significant people who were important during that era as part of our curriculum cycle that sees the thematic focus in the Autumn term look closely at developing children’s historical understanding and skills. The children had been inspired by the story of ‘The Curious Case of the Missing Mammoth’ by Ellie Hattie when it came to how they presented their work. There were full scale and even some edible models of thrones, stone age fires and ration era bean stew; lots of information, reports and facts shared through some fantastic writing and ‘lift the flap’ facts; artwork and mini-models of Greek architecture and stone age homes and even QR codes that allowed children to verbally tell you a little more about their work.

This is the third time that we have run the Notley Green museum and it was bigger and better than ever! Thank you to all those parents, carers and family members that came to visit – our children thoroughly enjoyed sharing their learning with you – and thank you to everyone on the staff team who helped the children to prepare for this brilliant museum.
