Barnsley Museum

As part of our Horrible Histories topic, we visited Barnsley Museum.  We had time to explore the fascinating artefacts and were given the challenge of trying to find the oldest, newest, largest and smallest artefact in the museum.  We found that the oldest artefacts were tools from the Stone Age and the smallest artefacts were the Roman coins.  We also had the opportunity to ask the curator many questions about the museum and about her job.  We learnt that every artefact had a story to tell.


Friday afternoon at Birdwell Primary

Just a typical end to our week at Birdwell School.

Famous Highwaymen

Our task for homework this week was to research a famous highwayman of our choice.  In our Literacy lesson, we were given an opportunity to present our information in a new and exciting way, using TinyTap.  To do this, we first thought of suitable questions to ask.  Next, we added a picture.  We then recorded our answers.  These are a working progress and will be updated and improved over time.

Please enjoy listening to our presentations.
