Year 2 Have a Smashing Time at the Glass Museum
Year 2 visited The World of Glass as part of our Materials topic for Science. We learned about the properties of glass while exploring some of the museum’s artefacts. We also toured the original Cone Building where the glass used to be made and learned more about how men, women and even children used to work in the factories producing glass. We watched a very exciting demonstration of glass blowing and discovered that the furnaces used during the glass blowing process are kept at temperatures of up to 1300 degrees C; hotter than the inside of a volcano! A 3D film explained the benefits and necessity of glass and how glass might play an important part in developing technology and innovations in the future. Finally, we had fun painting our own glass too.
