Yesterday the Year 2 children visited Swansea museum and the Waterfront museum to find out more about Christmas traditions. Our topic this term has been ‘Glitter and Glow’, and we have enjoyed finding out about different celebrations.
In Swansea museum, we listened to stories which explained where different traditions began. We all enjoyed acting out the stories, and had a turn at playing with toys from long ago. In the afternoon we moved on to the Waterfront museum, where we learnt about Victorian Christmas traditions. We then enjoyed making some Victorian Christmas cards and pomanders. A fantastic time was had by all.
