Charnwood museum library visit

On 11th June, a selection of Year 7 students who had taken part in a competition, visited the Charnwood Museum in Loughborough. The event was organised by Creative Learning Services as part of a Power Reads Project.

Firstly, we took part in an Art Workshop, using Taxidermist hares to create textured drawings of animals. We then visited displays in the museum for a presentation about the history of various household and war exhibits from WW2. All the students found this very interesting and educational.

Georgia, a student in Year 7, won second prize in the Creative Writing Competition out of all the schools that had taken part in the Leicestershire area. She was presented with a prize by the author Matt Dickinson. The prize was a piece of artwork by the illustrator Chellie Carroll of the book “The Moonlight Hare”.

Below are some quotes from the students:

  • Georgia - The trip was amazing. It was educational, fun and had games, all in one. I particularly liked the WW2 exhibition, who knew you could learn so much from one household item. There was so much to do on this trip, something for everyone.
  • A student -My favourite part of the trip was when we got to create texture on a picture of a hare.
  • Maria – It was extremely fun. I was smiling the whole time and found it all interesting.
  • Anya – I loved it; it was brilliant. The staff were friendly and made the educational part interesting and such fun.
  • Jake – I enjoyed the trip and would love to do it again.
  • A student -I enjoyed seeing all the different competition entries from all the schools.
  • Harrison- I think the trip was good. The part I enjoyed the most was the WW2 exhibit because I got to learn things and share my knowledge with the group.
