Yr 5 & 6 Trip to the Stained Glass museum, May 2019

“On Wednesday, the 8th May, Year 5 & 6 went on a field trip to the Stained Glass Museum.

Children watched a film about how glass is made and blown, and then there was a tour of the workshop at the museum. During the tour, the children learnt about the process of mapping out an image onto glass and selecting colours. They also learned that the glass is stained using a dry pigment that becomes liquid “stained glass” once mixed with water and applied to a clear glass surface.

Our pupils made paper versions of “stained glass” round windows modelled after the famous window in Notre Dame, Paris.” Maria McCabe
