Zayn’s write up of the trip to the Ashmoleon

posted in: Uncategorized | 0

On Thursday 12th, we went to the Ashmoleon museum in Oxford. The instructor took us to a statue art room with loads of ancient statues made by Ancient Greeks. None of them were copies and I thought that was amazing! Our first activity was where we had to get in a pair and we had to find a certain model and a fact. After that, we went into a roomful of objects such as armour, pots and jewellery. I recommend it because we got to hold real ancient artefacts- not copies but real! We went round the museum and found more things we didn’t know about so on the way back, we had LOADS to talk about. I personally recommend this trip for next year’s year 6.
