Pupils have been studying about their local area in Topic. To support their learning, pupils visited a workshop about suit case diaries in the Hackney Museum. Pupils discovered how Hackney has changed through the stories and suitcases of people who travelled to Hackney from all over the world and throughout history. Pupils had the opportunity to explore objects, materials and music to learn more about Hackney.
