6CS create a National Trust exhibition!

6CS have thoroughly enjoyed taking part in an exciting World War 1 project . They have been working hard, with Fifth Word Theatre Company, to produce an exhibition of archives and artefacts for the National Trust. The exhibition will be displayed at Sudbury Hall and then at Kedleston Hall. It has been an incredibly busy week with a trip to Sudbury Hall, where the children were trained to understand how to put together an exhibition and the importance of display techniques to interest their audience. As the week progressed, the class sorted through and gained a deeper understanding of events from World War 1 that were significant to Derby and the surrounding areas. We also visited The Derbyshire Record Office in Matlock and were able to look at and research actual archives from World War 1. As part of the project, a documentary film is being made so we had our very own camera man for the week!
