Event Details

The Year 4 children will take part in tailored, interactive workshops led by a member of the educational team. They will learn about the famous Victorian Explorer and his vast collection of artifacts from around the world, all located in this special and unique museum.

We will participate in the Ancient Egyptian workshop in the morning, during a guided tour round the Museum pupils become detectives and search for objects that tell us about life in Ancient Egypt and they will handle artefacts.

In the afternoon, we will learn about ‘masks’ from different cultures and periods in time from around the world, consider why people wear masks and how they are used in celebrations, performances or ceremonies. We will look closely at artefacts and take time to sketch and develop observation studies in our art sketchbooks in preparation for developing some mask ideas to create back in school during our art lessons for our forthcoming Junior Production.
