A trip to The British Museum!
By Firdausi, Ellen, Natalie and Marie
A year 5 class will go on a trip to the British Museum. They would have
been learning about Ancient Greece – a study of Greek life and
achievements and their influence on the western world.
The topic would have been covered over History, English and Art.
The class will go on a trip to the British Museum to be able to learn
about the past from sources - focusing on learning about life in Ancient
Greece and the Ancient Greek Olympic games.
There are many different workshops relating to Ancient Greece that are
on offer at the British Museum.
On this trip, the pupils will take part in a 60 minute workshop called
‘How to find out about Greek life.’
Pupil’s will develop enquiry skills as they study the ‘painting on pots,
handle replica Greek objects and learn how to use them to find out
about different aspects of life in Ancient Greece.
When visiting the British Museum you would have to book
a lunch slot in the Ford Centre for Young Visitors (the
school lunch room) which also has lockers for storing
coats, bags and lunch boxes and has access toilets. We
would be given our own table. So, the children will have
to bring a packed lunch to the Museum.
Then pupils will discuss what
they can learn about Ancient
Greece from the various
artifacts and sources in the
‘Ancient Greece and Rome’
gallery on the ground floor.
We will specifically discuss the
Life in Ancient Egypt, Myths and
legends and Olympic games.
The class will be split into three
groups, taking turns to view
artifacts from each section.
