This term Year 2 are studying the development of Luton through the ages in our history lessons.
If you would like to enhance your child’s learning may we recommend a trip to Stockwood Park Museum? The museum is local and completely free to visit. There are several interesting displays showing lots of historical items from our town and district and often a good visiting exhibition of art work.
Please do take your children down to the old stables as here you will find hundreds of archaeological artefacts found in and around Luton from all the periods of history that your children have been studying. The centre also has a good café and play area as well as extensive gardens to explore so why not plan an Easter holiday fun day out.
If you don’t mind travelling a few extra miles the museum of Verulamium is in St Albans is another recommendation, although it incurs a small entry fee, it is worth it to explore the many drawers full of Roman artefacts and to see first hand the beautiful Roman Wall remains and visit an indoor hypocaust system and learn how the Romans heated their homes. This park also has a play area and café and is another great idea for a family day out.
