On 4th December both Y4 classes headed for Weston Park Museum to extend their study of Ancient Greece. As well as following a trail in the museum to focus on Greek artefacts, they experienced an excellent workshop ' Offerings to Athena', where they built a model Parthenon and went on a procession to find a statue of Athena herself. They also looked in detail at the outside of the museum building, picking out the Greek-inspired features. They should now be able to sort out their doric, ionic and Corinthian columns from their pediments!
