Our visit to the Framework Knitters Museum, Ruddington

What an amazing resource to have on the doorstep. The museum has been refurbished with Lottery money and they've done a fantastic job. Compared to a lot of the history that we study in school, the Victorians are quite recent, but still feel so remote for the children. To visit a place only a ten minute drive away and learn about real people that lived and worked on the site has really helped ground the children's understanding of the time.

If you're so inclined, do take the children back and let them take you around. You may even get to make your own scarf! The pictures below also include some inspiration for what you could turn the knitted tubes in to once their life as a scarf is over...

Working scientifically...

We have been learning about materials and how we can make use of their properties.
