Emmaville Primary School

Oriental Museum Visit

30th September 2016

On Tuesday 20th September, Years 5 and 6 went on a visit to the Oriental Museum in Durham to learn more about their topic for the half term, which is the Shang Dynasty.
They experienced three workshops which looked at artefacts in the museum, trying some Chinese writing and also embossing their own foil pots. They also took part in a role-play telling the story of the last Shang emperor . It was a very enjoyable and interesting day out, which the children greatly enjoyed.
