    i loved our trip to the British Museum because we are currently learning about Benin we all had so much fun on our trip we all loved it l am so happy we all went we saw the Benin marks i loved it and i will love to go there

  10. My favourite part of our trip to the British History Museum was seeing the sculptures of the faces of the important people in the Benin culture. The thing I found most interesting was the fact that no two sculptures are the same. Every one is unique. In class we watched a video about the process they go through to make them and I thought that the fact they could only have one chance at creating each one was a bit harsh. It was really fun and a good way to learn about other cultures and people that are often overlooked
