Our ESOL (English for Speakers of Other Languages) pupils at King’s Ely Prep enjoyed exploring the Museum of Zoology, Cambridge and the Museum of Archaeology and Anthropology!
At the Museum of Zoology, the Years 5-8 pupils participated in a workshop on evolution and Charles Darwin with a knowledgeable zoologist. They were able to hold and inspect several animal skulls and learn about their adaptations. The turtle, badger and slender-snouted crocodile skulls were of particular interest and sparked lively conversation.
At the Museum of Archaeology and Anthropology, the students embarked on a treasure hunt to identify and document objects including Samurai armour, some Benin Bronzes, and not forgetting the 14-metre-tall totem pole from the Queen Charlotte Islands in Canada!
