Whose shoes are these?

November 2016

We have been finding out about shoes and Northampton and the Cobblers.

Today we were learning about making shoes. We had a go at making our own slippers. We also designed our own shoes. Can you make some slippers at home?

Last week we went to the Town Museum. We found lots of old shoes and some old machinery for making shoes. Can you see Dorothy’s ruby slippers? Can you find the very old Roman sandal and the elephant’s boot? We got to try different shoes on and try an old foot x-ray machine. Take your family back to the museum for another visit.
