Year 3's Trip to the World of Glass

Lesson: History

Class: Year 3 Year: 2018-2019

Today (8.2.19) Year 3 went on a trip to The World of Glass.

We looked at lots of different historical pieces of art from all around the world and watched a demonstration of glass blowing. We even got a lovely piece of glass art to bring back to school with us.

We also went through the old tunnels which were a small part of the factory many years ago when St Helens began to make glass.

One of the galleries had lots of old artefacts showing the history of St Helens, such as Beechams, Pilkingtons and coal mining. The children loved looking at these historical pieces and finding out more about the history of their town.
