Our Monksmead Friends Visit Us
Friday 25 November 2016
In November two classes from Monksmead School visited the museum. Great fun was had by all using the old-fashioned cash register , handling pre-decimal coins and weighing out 2oz of sweets in Hanson and Maud’s sweetshop.
The children explored the museum and both classes took part in a Curious Curator workshop, handling a range of artefacts including a Bakelite telephone and an Edwardian hot-water bottle.
In another workshop, the Year 2 children used maps and photographs to find out just how much Borehamwood had changed in a 100 years.
The younger children in Year 1 handled and played with a range of old-fashioned toys including a Diabolo and a spinning top.
