On Monday 11 October Year 4 set of in a coach for London, packed lunches at the ready, full of excitement. We were paying a visit to the Natural History Museum to consolidate all the work that we have done in Science this half term. Great oohs and aahs were heard straight away as we entered the museum and were greeted by the enormous diplodocus skeleton. After looking at the skeletons of various different animals from snakes to tortoises we went to look at the huge skeleton of the blue whale and other mammals. This was followed by a trip to the dinosaur exhibition and hungry tummies were the only thing that was going to drag them away from the T Rex! At lunch time we had a visit from Elizabeth’s parents who work nearby and were treated to kinder eggs – once the sandwiches had been eaten. The afternoon took us to the Investgation Centre where the children were given the opportunity to be real scientists; measuring, weighing researching and looking at things under the microscope. Three very sleepy teachers sat on the coach on the return journey but it takes more than a day out to wear out our wondeful Year 4s! They were a credit to the school and we are all looking forward to the next trip in the New Year.
