On Thursday we went to Westbury Manor museum in Fareham for part of our heritage project.
First of all the lady lead us into a room where we would put our bags and snacks.
Me and Myah paired up for the first activity. We had to find the objects printed on different cards and although it was tricky, we managed to find 2. Next we had to pull out a piece of small paper to lead to information. Mine and Myah’s was the ROMAN CURSE !
We found the board and we found out that it was paper and had all sorts of markings on it. Everyone had a different one.
After that we went into to 2 groups. We had 3 activities. One was where we had to spot things on the map like where is Westbury manor and West Street and lots more. There were 2 maps one was taken in 2006 and the other one was in 1776 [I think]. They were completely different!
The next activity was where we had to look at photographs and put them into groups. They were working life, transport, People and children, houses and building and shopping. After that, we had to choose a photograph and think of questions do go with it.
The final activity was where we had to sort out the people and you could see their ages and their jobs [occupations].It was a big challenge to read the writing because it was in unusual writing.
Eventually we went to the room we first came in, to have our snacks. Hassi gave us a yummy, delicious mini roll each. That was really kind and thoughtful of her.
After we had our snacks we were told our homework which was to find out what WWWWW meant. WWWWW meant 5 bums 0n a bed which we found quite funny. HA HA HA
When we had found out our homework it was nearly time to go. The coach wasn’t here yet so we quickly had another look at the first floor which had lots of made sculptures and stuff which was really expensive! I signed the book saying that it was a really good experience to come here and that this museum is the best ever.
Just in time, the coach arrived so we said goodbye and we left Westbury Manor museum.
Thank you Miss Deane and Hassi for taking us
