‘I like the stick on moustaches because you can go and trick your friends and go and say that I have grown a moustache when you haven’t.’ Leah
As you might recall from one of our earlier blog posts, St James’ Church of England Primary School, Birch-in-Rusholme Year 5 class took over the museum for a day in November 2013. They have been continuing their take over by telling us about what the day in a series of three guest blogs.
In this second blog you will hear from the group who took over our Front of House team. These Year 5 students had a busy morning: they chose their Top 5 favourite shop items (by democratic means of course), picked out stock that they thought we should sell in our shop and created a beautiful Christmas display. The students then helped our Gallery Assistants to greet visitors, write up events on our notice board and look after our gallery spaces.
Top 5 favourite shop items (chosen by St. James’ Year 5 class)
- T-Shirt maker
- Tin yo-yo
- Plastic cup (beaker)
- Note Book (pad)
Individual Top 5 Shop Items
You can find out what the Year 5 students chose as their Top 5 items to buy:
1] Tin yoyo because lots of people like yoyos and you can do lots of tricks.
2] Fake moustache because they’re really funny.
3] T-shirt markers .
Top 5 things to buy in PHM gift shop
1) stick on moustaches
2) plastic cups
3) melty beads
4) tin yo-yo
5) wooden skipping rope
I like the plastic cup because they have a massive curly straw which goes right round the cup.
I like the melty beads because I like sticking them on the spiky thing. I forgot its name and then you have to iron them and they melt.
I like the tin yoyo because I like to have a competition how many times it bounces before it all gets tangled.
I like the wooden skipping rope because I love skipping. I always see how many jumps I do.
Top 5 things to buy in PHM Gift Shop
- Polystyrene Plane
- Desktop Bowling
- Tin Yo-yo
- Seed Bomb
- Sky Divers
I liked the Polystyrene Planes because they flew, they were easy to handle, and were pocket-sized. I liked the Desktop Bowling because if I get bored when I’m doing my homework I can take a short break and play a quick round with it. I liked the Tin Yo-yo because it didn’t look like it would break easily because most of the time when I buy a plastic yo-yo it breaks really quick.
