McKee and Carle classes had the opportunity to take part in an historic event today. They witnessed the Great Bed of Ware arriving back in to its home town. The two classes walked to the Museum, who kindly provided blankets for the children to sit on and then they spent the morning watching the parts of the bed being unloaded and lifted into the Museum.
We were interested in the bed, we will learn more about that next term and the crane because we have been looking a vehicles.
We had the opportunity to speak to The BBC, Ware online and volunteers from the Museum. The children behaved impeccably and were very polite to the people who spoke to them. We were very proud of them.
The highlight of the trip was seeing the crane lift the largest section on the bed up and over the trees and bushes and through the roof of the museum, which had been removed for this purpose.

The children are keen to see the bed in situ and so we plan a return visit to the museum to see it once it has been reassembled. Thank you to the parents who walked with us.
