British Museum Visit

Year 4 visited the British Museum in order to see the Benin Bronzes as part of their topic Benin: A Lost Kingdom. They were amazed at the detail and the craftsmanship of the plaques in particular - they really are stunning in real life! The children recognised lots of the artefacts from our work in class. They then took part in a workshop about the Edo people and how we know about the Kingdom of Benin from the artefacts that have survived, as they had no written language.
