Years 5 and 6 visit the British Museum
On 3rd November we went to the British Museum. When we got there we went into one of the rooms where there were the Elgin Marbles! We looked around the room to see which marble we wanted to sketch. If we managed to finish the marble we were sketching then we could move onto another design.
After lunch Class 5 and Class 6 went to a talk. The woman talked about Greek Mythology and how to recognise a Greek God or Goddess in Greek poetry.
Once the talk had finished we went to look round the museum to see if we could spot any famous greek people. As soon as we had looked around the rooms we went downstairs to sketch the replica of the Parthenon. After we had finished sketching, we went to get our things and then travelled back to school! We learnt a lot and had a fantastic day!
