And the Winner is….


The Judges have made their decision!

This past school holiday, over the May half term, the theme of our activities here at the Museum was “The Children of Victorian Stories”. Visitors to the Museum could have a go at getting Dorothy to Oz by making thier own cyclones, create their own Jungle Book scene for Mowgli to inhabit and contribute to our Little Women inspired newspaper by writing articles, poems and illustrating scenes from Oliver and Jane Eyre. They could even follow Alice through Wonderland to find the answer to it all- “NONSENSE!”

In equal nonsensical fashion we also ran a riddle competition, inviting our visitors to answer the age old question “Why is a Raven like a Writing Desk?” Many of you had a good go and we had some fabulous answers which will be published in the Ragged Times here on this site in a couple of weeks, along with the other articles and illustrations.

There could, however, only be one winner. After much deliberation, 6 year old Cora from North West London was chosen as our stand out winner with the answer:DSC04592

The judges decided that this answer not only was very clever, but had just enough nonsense in it to perfectly capture the theme of the day and to do Lewis Carroll proud! Well done and congratulations to Cora who will shortly be receiving her prize of a Ragged School dip pen to carry on using her great imagination!

We hope that everyone who attended our holiday activites this May half term enjoyed themselves and will be able to join us again over the Summer Holidays for even more creative fun!


See you soon!
