Year 1 viist Walsall Leather Museum

Pupils in Year 1 enjoyed a visit to Walsall Leather Museum last week to learn more about Walsall’s rich history in the leather trade.

The trip was a fantastic start to the children’s new topic, ‘Toys’, as they look at toys from the past. They heard from staff and asked lots of questions.

They also had the chance to try hands-on activities using tools of the leather trade. They made their own Chinese dragon puppet from leather and keyrings with gold blocking. They were also shown leather skins from different animals like crocodiles and snakes.
