Visit to the Oriental Museum
We had a fun filled day at the Oriental Museum in Durham. We started the day by talking about the Great Fire of London and looking at old maps to see where the fire spread. Then we had a go at writing with a quill and ink to make a list of what we would save in a fire.
We had the chance to act out putting out the fire using leather buckets! The afternoon was spent finding out about fire in other cultures, acting out the story of Diwali and making our own clay lamps.
