The Y3 pupils visited the Museum in Birmingham’s famous Jewellery Quarter. The museum used to be the actual factory and had all the equipment left as it used to be. The pupils learnt about the journey of gold from being found in the ground to being made into jewellery. Unfortunately the gold bars were replaced with fake replicas!!!
