Year 6 School Trip to The Foundling Museum, 13th November 2018Posted on 13/11/2018
On Wednesday the Year 6 children enjoyed a wonderfully thought-provoking trip to the Foundling Museum in London to learn about the lives of poor children in Georgian and Victorian Britain. They were fascinated by the patience of Thomas Coram in waiting seventeen years to gain permission to set up the Foundling Hospital along with the kindness of famous artists (William Hogarth) and musicians (Handel- our composer of the month) in donating their time and works of art to support the children. We can’t wait to explore the history of the Foundling children further back in class. A huge thank you to the five parent volunteers who expertly led their groups around the museum; the museum staff commented on the super engagement and behaviour of the children.
