As part of our topic ‘Ancient Greece’, Year 5 went on a visit to Weston Park Museum. They took part in a workshop learning the story of Athena and the creation of Athens. They were able to create their own Parthenon using columns and walls made from polystyrene. They were also able to create their our aulos, which are an instrument the Greeks played that looked like a two parted flute.
In the afternoon, the children had the chance to look around the various exhibits in the museum, such as What on Earth!, Sheffield Life and Times and Beneath our Feet. They discovered lots to do with our local history.
