Horniman Museum

Year 5 went on an exciting trip to the Horniman Museum in London. We looked at an array of different masks which we were able to use as inspiration for our mask project in Art. Many of the masks came from different cultures and countries and we all had the chance to try them on. Some of the masks were worn on the head and had costumes to go with them. We also had the opportunity to look at and try out different musical instruments, such as the talking drums, a Thumb Piano made from metal spoons and forks, an Ankun made from bamboo with each instrument having a different pitch, a Balunfon which is a xylophone made from wood with gourds underneath the wooden bars and a Conch Shell.
