We had a jam-packed and wonderful day at Maidstone Museum on our class trip. Having two hands-on and practical workshops in the morning was ideal. Firstly, we handled a range of ancient Greek artefacts and replicas and we had to decide what the theme of the items were. We then had the chance to make their own clay theatre masks and oil lamps which were marvellous. The class showed great focus and attention whilst completing the task. The afternoon session gave us the chance to explore the museum and complete the i-pad trail. This was met with opportunities to dress up in fashion through time which was enjoyed by many!
Some of our descriptive writing in English was very impressive based on the characters from Pandora's Box! Here are just a few brilliant examples.
Zeus’ rough, white hair billows in unseen winds. His powerful posture creates a shimmering aura around him like a golden mist. Cunning shows in wrinkles that spread across Zeus’ face.
As the wind delicately blew, Pandora’s golden locks danced around behind her. Every step she takes is as light as a feather drifting gently away. Her eyes are so blue and deep that if you saw them you’d be afraid that you’ll fall into them.
Zeus, king of the gods, listens to Earth whilst proudly holding his lightning bolt in his colossal fist.
