Wrington and Churchill Primary pupils studied dinosaurs, volcanoes and ancient Egypt
Year four pupils from Churchill and Wrington Primary Schools banded together for two days of fun and exploration of ancient history this month.
A trip to Bristol Museum allowed the pupils to become time detectives and enjoy activities that included experiencing ancient Egypt and counting the bones on the Bristol dinosaur.
They reconvened at Churchill Academy the next day for an action-packed programme of maths and science based workshops.
The sixty students took part in a dinosaur building session, erupted volcanoes and explored and handled real artefacts that were loaned by Bristol Museum. The art department guided the pupils in recreating the painting style of Georges Seurat and the English department rounded off proceedings by allowing the time detectives to reflect on their experiences.
