Suitcase Sessions in Year 2

Year 2 use their detective skills to find out about people's heritage...

As a part of our Heritage Week, Year 2 were visited by the Hackney Museum to examine objects inside suitcases from the past. Each suitcase was from a different period of time and had a variety of different items to give clues about where the owner came from, what they did for a job, and how they ended up in Hackney.

This helped us to understand how different objects can have significance to different people. We thought about this a lot this week, particularly when thinking about our own heritage.

Have a look at the objects - can you work out where or when they are from?
