Museum Day @ WHJUN

We knew that our Museum Day was off to a good start when Poseidon, the Greek god of the seas, turned up to show people around.  He wasn't alone though, and accompanied by an assortment of costumed curators, parents were shown around the museum 'site', handily marked out as 'zones' on our museum map.  In the 'Me, Myself and I' zone in Year 3, a grinning skeleton showed the way, whilst the DT area was bedecked with the children's 'memory boxes'.  In the Tudor Zone in Year 4, the brand new gallery wall was put to great use, displaying an assortment of children's work, whilst around the corner was the willow and tissue paper Tudor galleon made by all the children in Year 4, happily sailing along the corridor on a sea of blue backing paper.  Upstairs, Years 5 and 6 had made good use of the computer benching to put their wares on display for the 'Invaders and Settlers' zone and the 'Greece is the Word' zone respectively.  Year 5 had pretty much covered every type of armour worn throughout the Roman empire, from articulated armour to a centurion's helmet.  There was a great deal of house building in this zone too, and it's not often that you see a Celtic round-house on display next to a Roman villa and amphitheatre.  The Year 6 zone ended the tour with a plentiful supply of Greek vases and a rather fetching Spartan helmet.  There was so much great work on display.  All the children got a chance to tour the museum and enjoy the outcome of all the effort put into this great event, and to demonstrate that: 'We are proud of ourselves, and proud of each other'.
