Year 3 Visit to British Musem

As part of their History and Geography topic ‘Gods and Mortals’, Year 3 went on an exciting excursion to the British Museum to find out more about Ancient Greece. 

The children were greeted with Samsung Tablets and explored the Parthenon gallery, using augmented reality technology to develop historical inquiry skills and engage with the past in exciting and innovative ways.  

The children learnt about ancient Greek religion and how the Parthenon’s architecture celebrated Athena’s greatness and communicated the power of Athens. 

After Lunch the class then got the opportunity to take part in a Ancient Greece workshop where they looked at artefacts and secondary sources to learn more about different characters in Greek Myths. The museum staff were so impressed with the amount of knowledge the children already had and told our staff they were equally impressed with how well they represented the school. Well done!
