People's Palace Trip

Primary 2 at the People's Palace

After touring the iconic buildings of Glasgow and trying to spot the city's coat of arms from the bus, the children of Primary 2 enjoyed an afternoon at the People's Palace Museum. 
The children learned more about Glasgow life in the past and enjoyed a close up look at the way the people of Glasgow lived in the cramped conditions of a single-end flat, what wash day was like in 'The Steamie' and how the 'high days and holidays' were spent on trips 'Doon the Watter'.
Afterwards the children spent some time looking at household objects from the past and compared them to more modern examples.  The afternoon passed very quickly and the children returned to school saying they'd love to visit the museum again.
