​Year 3 visit to the Horniman Museum

Year 3 visited the Horniman Museum. We first did an African object trail. We discovered a Bata Drum used by the Yoruba people in Nigeria, A Zulu necklace made up of over hundred teeth, and a basket used by the Mbendjele people of the  Democratic Republic of the Congo to gather food and materials in the rainforest.

Next, we were lucky enough to do a hands-on workshop. 

We visited the largest market in Ghana’s capital Accra, tried on clothes, played with a ‘talking’ drum and bought some local clothes. We played  with African toys made from recycled materials. We learnt about the Maasai people’s traditional way of life, their home and the animals that live there.
