Highbridge pupils raise charity funds with their own history museum

Talented pupils at a Highbridge school have raised funds for two local charities by creating their own history museum.

The Year 3 students at Churchfield School have been creating historical artwork and crafts with a Roman theme as part of a project, which then went on display.

Teacher Joanne Clement explained: "As part of our topic on the Romans, we gave our classes a homework project to create something to do with the Romans."

"It was entirely the choice of the children what they made, we had many things handed in, from a Roman statue to Roman villas and Roman shoes, to Roman jewellery!"

"The children had three weeks to create their homework project, then over the past week, we have held a Roman museum in the school which was opened to family, friends and our school."

"Posters were made to advertise the event and a small charge of 25p per adult was introduced, with the proceeds going to two local charities which the children chose."

"The children raised £30 which is going to be split between Secret World Wildlife Rescue Centre and Burnham hovercraft charity BARB."

Pictured here are some of the colourful items made by the Year 3 Churchfield students that were on show.

Teachers Joanne Clement and Kerry Fitzgerald thanked all those who had supported the event and praised the children for the quality of their exhibits and enthusiasm.
