Sketelton Secrets Museum Visit

Children in year 3 had a great morning working with skeletons at the Skeleton Secrets workshop at Wakefield Museum. First, children donned their white lab coats before being taught about a variety of diseases resulting from either a lack of, or too much of certain foods in their diets. From the shapes and conditions of the skeletons, children were also able to tell: roughly what age the person was when they died; whether they were male or female and even if they had been rich or poor! Children had to reassemble replica skeletons in small groups, before using their scientific and archaeological skills to find out as much as they could about each one (they were all different). We all had a fab morning!
