The Victoria And Albert Museum!

Recently, I visited the Victoria and Albert museum in London. I had an amazing time and if you want to find out more, I have linked to the website here. First, we (my grandma, Robbie and I ) visited the Imagination/Creation Station - I cannot remember exactly what it's called- and we were given materials and told to design a boat. They gave us pictures and references of rooms that had boats in for inspiration, and there were instructions on how to create a paper boat. We were equipped with fancy paper, coloured paper, scissors, pencils, a lolly stick and sellotape. It was great fun.

Afterwards we borrowed a backpack, which had everything we needed in it to learn about the middle ages. The backpack took us through parts of the museum we wouldn't ever have known about without it! We looked at a gigantic tapestry, dressed up as people from the Middle Ages, attempted a mosaic challenge and much, much more! It was lots of fun and we learnt a lot, especially about seals and patterns. We also had lunch in the restaurant, which was beautifully decorated. The food was lovely too. After playing on some fun chairs that spun round and round, we went home, rosy-cheeked and happy. We didn't have enough time to do everything, but we still had a great day.
