On Wednesday 14th March Year 4 went to the World Museum in Liverpool to view the Terracotta Army exhibition. This was a unique opportunity, because the Chinese government have only allowed a certain number of museums in the world to display these amazing warriors!
The children got to view the warriors and learn all about how they were discovered, they also had the opportunity to take part in various workshops to learn about Chines writing, how Emperor Qin Shi Huang (pronounced chin-she-hwuong) united the different states of China into one country and how large his burial site was, where the warriors were discovered.
As part of our family learning day we found out the location of 14 of the states of the US.
We read Cassius's description of Boudicca and dressed our mannequins as we thought she would look like.
She was very tall.
She looked terrifying with a fierce glint in her eye. Her voice was harsh. A great mass of startling bright yellowish red hair hung down to her hips. Around her neck she had a huge torque of gold. She wore a dress of many colours with a thin cloak over it pinned together with a brooch.’
Cassius Dio (100 years after Boudicca’s reign)
