- About Us
On Friday 23rd November we had a visit from Auckland Castle's Pop up Museum. The curators, Debra and Rebecca, brought lots of props and costumes.
First, we tried out sitting on the huge throne and then we looked at artifacts while wearing white museum gloves. Before lunch, we listened to a story about a boar and then made a cardboard boar with hair and googly eyes.
In the afternoon we dressed up as Kings, Queens, Prince Bishops and knights. We told stories about people, who once lived in the castle, using freeze frames. We had an amazing day and the children and staff thoroughly enjoyed it!
Leo - We learnt that knights have armour, swords and bows and arrows.
