Pupils in all year groups at the Junior Boys’ School made the most of the rare opportunity to see the famous Terracotta Warriors while they are being exhibited at the World Museum in Liverpool. This is the first time in almost ten years that this iconic piece of world history has come to the UK.

The boys were fascinated by the tales of emperors, dynasties and the afterlife during this memorable and informative visit. The morning was an enlightening chance for children and staff alike to learn something new.

The China’s First Emperor and the Terracotta Warriors exhibition spans 1,000 years of Chinese history and includes a number of objects that have never been on show in the UK. The highlight was no doubt the ten figures that for 2,000 years quietly guarded the tomb of China’s First Emperor, Qin Shi Huang, before they were discovered in 1974.

Pupils in Year 6 spent the whole day at the World Museum, exploring the other exhibits after viewing the Terracotta Warriors, while Year 5 travelled to Port Sunlight for the afternoon. Year 4 pupils explored the Maritime Museum and discovered more about ‘The Battle of the Atlantic’ and ‘The Titanic’ on the afternoon of their trip to Liverpool.
