Our visit to Mill Green Museum

On Wednesday 15th November, Hazel and Pine class travelled to Welwyn on a 70 seater coach to learn more about The Great Fire of London. 

Each class was split into 3 groups and rotated round 6 different activities. We used a construction kit to learn how cogs can make things move and rotate, had a tour of the mill and time to dress up in old fashioned clothing. 

After lunch, we went to the upstairs classroom to handle artefacts and decide what we would rescue from the fire, label paintings with descriptive words and sort pictures of old and new fire equipment. We all got to make a cottage loaf roll in the kitchen and take it home.

We had a really great day out!
