The Great Bed of Ware

Today a special assembly was held by the two Johns from Ware Museum.  They came to talk to us about the Great Bed of Ware which is currently on display at Ware Museum.  John Wing spoke to the school about the bed and when it is thought to have been in Ware. 

So how many people can fit in the Great Bed of Ware?  John laid out some carpet tiles to make the size of the Great Bed.  We managed to fit 15 children lying down in this space or 36 children sitting up.

Each child will be given a token and when they visit Ware Museum they will then get two stamps on a loyalty card.  After four stamps a special book mark will be rewarded.


  1. I'm looking forward to visiting the Great Bed of Ware, it sounds interesting.

  2. I was very much looking forward to this assembly and am sad I could not be there. It looks like it went well though and I am sure you can tell me about it another time. So glad I could see it on the blog :-)
