Monday 27th January | 4 comments

This Wednesday (January 29th) we will be opening our classroom up as ‘2F’s Groovy 1960s and 70s Museum!

Parents will be able to come in for a sneak preview before school starts and then we will open the doors early at the end of the day, (3.00pm) so that they can come in and find out more. During the day we will have visits from children in Reception, year 3, 5 and 6!

We will also open the Museum again on Friday afternoon for 1GJ and at the end of the day (3.00pm) for parents and families to get another chance to view it.

The children have learned lots of facts about the 1960s and 70s and we have some wonderful artefacts for you to see. Come and see toys, records, games, clothes and books from this groovy era. Listen to music being played on a record player and even sniff ‘Old Spice,’ the scent which men wore then. We can show you how to hand jive and twist and sing a Beatles song for you!

Watch these videos to hear some of the amazing facts we will share with you and to see some of the artefacts we have.

    Hello 2F,

    It was very kind of you to invite us to your groovy 60s and 70s gallery. We really enjoyed ourselves so thank you very much.

    We learnt about toys from the time and that they were mostly based on television programmes and that lego was invented in 1958. It was very interesting to see the lego as it is different nowadays. We didn’t realise that children didn’t have video games during this time!

    We also learnt about missions to space including sending a monkey before Neil Armstrong and that 60s and 70s dancing is really groovy.

    From 5/6D

    You must very excited about the opening of your exhibition tomorrow 2F…It sounds amazing and we can’t wait to come and take a look on Friday afternoon. You have been really busy learning lots of interesting facts about the 60’s & 70’s and I’m looking forward to a trip down memory lane (as I was born in the 70’s!). Old Spice was Eva’s Great-Grandad’s aftershave of choice and I always remember that smell, so will look forward to telling her about him & his aftershave when we visit together! GOOD LUCK tomorrow and have lots of fun.
