Upper 2 Explore the Museums in Cambridge

26 May 2022

On 11 May, the Upper 2 travelled to the beautiful city of Cambridge to visit the Fitzwilliam Museum, as well as the Museum of Archaeology and Anthropology.

The pupils got to see artworks from every corner of the globe. Pupils were in awe of the splendid architecture of the Fitzwilliam Museum and enjoyed exploring the range of works inside. They were treated to a special exhibition of pieces by the famed artist David Hockney, where they enjoyed his colourful and vibrant paintings. They were excited to learn that he uses an iPad for some of his works – just like they have back at school!

Just a stone's throw away at the archaeology museum, pupils were able to see artworks and everyday items from indigenous communities, as well as archaeological finds from around the globe. They even got to travel back in time and see how everyday items were made in the past through an object handling workshop.

A fun, art-filled day was had by all.
