Year 2 Visits Victoria & Albert Museum

Ni hao! This half term, Year 2 are learning all about China. As part of this topic we visited The Victoria & Albert Museum in South Kensington. Here we got the opportunity to take part in a workshop called “Asian Voyage – A journey through China.” We ventured to the China gallery and were amazed by the beautiful art work, furniture and clothing.

 

As part of our workshop we learned about the different materials used to make traditional Chinese objects. We split into teams and went on a hunt for ceramic, lacquer and silk. Finally, we went on a dragon hunt and were surprised to find over 100 dragons, including a few imperial five clawed dragons. Thank you to all the teachers and parents who helped out on our trip. It was a fantastic day of learning and fun.
