Year 2 visited the Natural History Museum as part of their Science topic, Living Things and their Habitats. They experienced an earthquake simulation that shook them up and gave them a sense of natural disasters. The mammal room provided a sense of size as the children viewed a blue whale, a giraffe and an elephant amongst other life sized animals. The children then turned into explorers in the wildlife garden as they put on safari hats and binoculars and went in search of minibeasts and plants. It was then a quick trip to the past to see some of the many dinosaur skeletons on display throughout the museum. A highlight of the trip for most of the children was seeing the moving, roaring model of the T-Rex. At the end of a busy day, the children were full of enthusiasm for the new things they had learnt and had found some new interests. Thank you to our parent helpers.
