To celebrate Gypsy, Roma and Traveller Month, June, we had some special visitors in!
Richard O'Neil, a published author, came in to share some of his stories which are based on life in the Traveller Community. He was entertaining and made us laugh lots!
We also had Phillipa in from the Museum of Rural Life who brought in lots of artefacts from GRT culture such as a cooking pot, traditional lace and a tea caddy. We had to be detectives and guess what they were and what they might have been used for. Then Lisa-Marie, an artist, helped us to represent our ideas about these beautiful objects in drawings and collage. The final artwork, which is a collaboration between the pupils at Mrs Blands and Garlands Schools, will be on display at the Museum in June 2024.
