A-Level Sociology Students Visit The Victoria & Albert Museum
A-Level Sociology students went to the Victoria and Albert Museum of Childhood on Friday 21st June 2019 to explore ideas of socialisation, childhood and changes in society.
The students really enjoyed the trip and found it “engaging and interactive”. Students had the opportunity to discuss consumerism and how rapidly toys and other household objects had changed. They were able to play with and look at toys from their childhood right back to the Victorian era and even stopped for a game of snakes and ladders.
One student described it as a “blast from the past”.
"The trip gave us the chance to have fun as a class whilst discussing sociology and societal change." Katie Ronan, Psychology Teacher at Haringey Sixth Form College.
"Well done to Katie and the team. Trips like this really bring learning to life. I have visited the museum myself and I know that there is a real opportunity there to enhance understanding by getting hands-on with objects from their learning collection. For today’s young people it brings learning about the past, to life. I do believe that without doubt, the V&A Museum of Childhood is the place to bring students to experience inspirational learning.
This is another great example of how our fantastic tutors get out of the classrooms and find exciting engaging activities to enhance the student experience here at Haringey Sixth Form College." Russ Lawrance, Principal & CEO at Haringey Sixth Form College.
