School children enjoy virtual trip to Washington museum
Year six pupils at a Backwell school enjoyed a virtual trip to the USA as part of their remote learning programme during lockdown.
Children from Fairfield School visited the Smithsonian National Museum of Natural History in Washington DC, taking a self-guided virtual tour of areas and exhibits.
Pupils also planned how they would travel to America, took part in a virtual treasure hunt and a dinosaur-drawing workshop.
Fairfield headteacher Lesley Barton said: “We love how creative our staff and children have been during lockdown and the year six trip is a great example.
“Throughout the crisis, our teachers have been working hard to deliver high-standard of teaching to our pupils remotely.
