In Their Footsteps Gallery – First World War Museum Trip
Thursday 1st December | 7 comments
This morning, 6T went to Leeds City Museum to look around the temporary gallery – In Their Footsteps – which is all about Leeds in the First World War. The children worked through some really challenging questions including those written by me to really stretch their understanding:
- Having viewed the gallery, what questions would you like to ask or areas to research further?
- If you had been old enough to serve in the Leeds Pals, would you have signed up voluntarily or waited until you were forced? Why?
- Having looked around the gallery, do you think it was a good idea that the pals regiments were formed? Why?
Another school were in the gallery at the same time as us and their staff commented on how polite, calm and focused the children were as they learned about the topic.
The children were awesome!
