What a fantastic day Base 4 had (including the adults) on Thursday 17th March at the World Museum in Liverpool.

Although we had quite a long journey their the children were so excited to get in and start exploring what the museum had to offer. We started in the aquarium, discovering different types of fish whilst waiting for our presentation to start. We saw starfish, sting rays and various types of fish (including ones that looked like Nemo and Dory).

Following a journey through the aquarium, we went into the Theatre where we were greeted by Adam — museum presenter. He gave an excellent presentation all about the Ancient Greek Gods and Goddesses, some of us got to dress up and act like them. We had Zeus, Poseidon, Athena and many more. We then got to be a part of acting out the story of Perseus, taking on the different roles, including Medussa, whose head got chopped off!! Enetually we were all turned to stone becuase we looked into Medussa's eyes. It was a fantastic opportunity for the children and a great way to learn more about Ancient Greek mythology.

Lunch came next of course, especially as we were all starving! After we had demolished all of our lunch, we walked all the way to the top of the museum building, 5 floors!!! At the top we found the space display where we found out about the moon (the types of rock it was made from and it's size), we saw some footage of Tim Peake in space doing an experiment with water, we saw sundials from all of the world some of which were very old, we also got the chance to pick up a fragment of a meteorite it was extrememly heavy!

After we had discovered space we then made our way down through the museum, stumbling upon dionosaurs, Ancient worlds and even the bug house (we found 2 tarantulas).

The children had a very enjoyable day and learnt a lot about Greece and other aspects of the world/life. They even had a trip to the shop to end the day.

The museum were very accommmodating and the children's behaviour was exemplary throughout the day, they should be proud of themselves being able to represent Wrenbury Primary School in an excellent manner!
