Schoolchildren in Topsham staged an exhibition about ancient Greece, writes Lewis Deakin.

The event was the culmination of what the children had learned throughout the term.

The pupils visited Exeter’s Royal Albert Memorial Museum and Art Gallery to learn how to set up their own display.

Headteacher Sean Millar said the children enjoyed demonstrating what they had learned to their parents.

He said: “The children visited the Royal Albert Memorial Museum and Art Gallery to look at how museums and exhibitions are laid out to help them set up their own exhibition.

“The kids invited their parents to come and see their learning, which covered a range of areas, including history, art, geography and literacy.

“There was great support from parents.

“Having a meaningful and purposeful opportunity to share their learning with their mums and dads really motivated the pupils.”
