Year 3 visit Northampton shoe museum

Year 3 visit Northampton shoe museum

This week students from Year 3 visited the Northampton Shoe Museum as part of their ‘Step into My Shoes’ topic.

The museum is home to the largest historical shoe collection in the world and features more than 12,000 shoes from elephants’ shoes, to David Beckham’s and a pair worn by King Louis.

The students really enjoyed the trip, one Year 3 student said 'My favourite part was holding the shoes. We held one that was long like a carrot! It was long because the more money you had the longer the shoe was!'
