The British Museum


Birch class has a great day out at the British Museum in London. As part of our Early civilisation topic we completed a workshop called 'Around the World in a Day'. Children got into groups and studied an object from either: Ancient Assyria, Egypt, Olmec, Greek or the Zhou Dynasty of China. Each object was from around 600-700 BC. They discussed/ researched what it was and what they told them about the people of the time. They then explored the museum for other related artefacts before making a report of their findings. Click Here the class page for the links. Afterwards we explored the museum and found the famous Rosetta Stone and the Parthenon friezes. A long but amazing day had by all!
