KS2 History - Writing about Artefacts

Description

Following a visit to Brunel's SS Great Britain a Year 6 class continue their investigation of artefacts and people who were connected to them by writing some creative labels.

To accompany this programme there is a short virtual tour of the ship. This is designed for use in the classroom.

Local teacher Jacqueline Ferguson has partnered up with the education team at the SS Great Britain to create a unit of work called Creative Curator. The unit is designed to strengthen the link between learning at the museum and work done back in the classroom.

The pupils focus on one of the artefacts they photographed in the museum and write creative labels in the form of riddles and poems.

An afternoon lesson studying just one artefact pulls together prior knowledge of the Victorian life with the investigation at the SS Great Britain, helping to deepen their understanding of the period and produce some imaginative literacy.
