The Crystal Palace

Have you ever wondered about the unusual origins of some football team names? This week Eagles learned about the origins of the name of Crystal Palace when we researched the Great Exhibition of 1851. The Crystal Palace was over half a kilometre long! It housed lots of interesting inventions and discoveries: the money the exhibition raised paid for the Natural History Museum, the Science Museum and the Victoria and Albert Museum. We also had a go at mono printing some William Morrisinspired patterns.
