In a time of cancelled trips and lost plans we were lucky enough to manage a virtual visit from the National Archives in Year 6 this week!
We discussed the purpose of the National Archives, the collection that they hold and explored some WW2 propaganda.
It was really tricky to analyse some of the documents and sources that we looked at and the children did a fantastic job of asking enquiring questions and spotting things about the sources.
We found out some really interesting facts including that the National Archives has a second building inside a salt mine in Cheshire near Manchester. I wonder what it would be like to work there!
