The Norman

Paris Museum Grand Opening

Crowds of people turned out to the grand opening of Paris Class's Ancient Rome Museum at the end of term.

To conclude their summer topic, Paris class spent the final weeks of the summer term creating their very own museum.

They became curators of the museum, presenting information, artefacts and even some interactive games for their visitors. As part of their English lessons, the children produced persuasive leaflets telling the public all about the exhibits and why they should visit this brand new museum.

As well as this, the children applied for jobs in the museum, taking on roles as education officers, managers, gift shop assistants and security guards.

On Tuesday 21st July, they opened their doors to friends, family and fellow pupils. Despite the scorching hot weather making the museum feel somewhat like a sauna, it was a roaring success.


Highlights included a Roman artefacts talk by our Education Officers, Georgia and Daisy, Roman food tasting and electronic Roman quiz games that the children had created in their science lessons.


We would like to thank everyone who visited the museum. The children were thrilled to see their hard work paying off.
