On Tuesday 17th February Year 7 pupils of Trafalgar School visited L’Iber Museum to see the exhibition entitled “Hollywood and History”.
We were welcomed by Bob Yareham, who explained to us the history of the building and guided us into the museum, showing us the toy soldiers. We were overwhelmed to see the incredible collection compiled by the Noguera family. There are about 95,000 pieces that are visible and more than one million in stock. The pieces were perfectly displayed and they take care of even the smallest details.
Finally they projected some scenes of the film “El Cid” in original version, which was the most boring part of the visit.
It was our first experience of an excursion totally in English and it was worth it.
On 18th February Year 8 pupils of Trafalgar School visited L’Iber Museum , where we saw the exhibition entitled “Hollywood and History”.
We were welcomed by Bob Yareham, who explained to us the interesting history of the building, which is 500 years old.
Afterwards he showed us the museum, which has the biggest toy soldier collection in the world. The visit was like time travel, as with the pieces the most relevant moments of the history of Spain and the world are represented.
In the end, in the projections room, we saw and commented scenes of the film “Kingdom of Heaven” in the original version.
It was very interesting and, although it was our first school trip totally in English, we could understand almost everything, which was very fulfilling.
