Today we had a special visitor from the Newton Abbot Museum who came in to share with KS1 information about the new developments to the museum and run an art project. Year 1 were taken through a 3D tour of the architects’ plans for the museum before being introduced to our afternoon mission; to create a banner to attract people to the museum. The children used what they had learnt about the museum, what things you might see inside, special features, information about the history of Newton Abbot, as well as their knowledge about what makes a great banner, to design and create their own banner idea. The children’s designs will go to the museum where Kate and the team will look at the banners from our school, and banners from other schools, that will inspire the final two banners that will be placed outside of the new museum.
