YR5 & YR6 BRITISH MUSEUM TRIP
As part of our topic on Ancient Greece Years 5 & 6 visited the British Museum. We attended a lecture on the symbolism of the designs on Ancient Greek pots and vases – you can tell which gods and heroes are on the pots by looking at what they are wearing and carrying. We enjoyed using our knowledge when we explored the galleries and found some tiny pots as well as enormous ones. There were also Ancient Greek toys, jewellery and perfume bottles – we had to find specific designs to answer questions.
We used iPads to discover more about the friezes from the Parthenon and we had to answer questions by pointing the iPad at the right parts of the frieze, or at the right statue.
The facts we learnt and the discoveries we made have been useful at school as we study the Ancient Greeks.
