Reception children have had a wonderful visit to Hartlebury Castle and Worcestershire County Museum this week.
The children enjoyed spending time in the Museum’s toy gallery, comparing and contrasting old toys with new toys, looking at the materials used. They also visited the Bishop’s Palace and listened to the talking pictures which they were intrigued by and learned all about who had lived there and what the castle is used for today.
Worcestershire County Museum is in the North wing of the Castle and has themed galleries which help us have an idea of what life was like for people in Worcestershire through the ages.
The children had fun in the Victorian school room and learned about the rather strict school teachers. They loved stepping back in time and through role play discovered more about the castle’s 1000 years of history.
