Ourselves and Other Animals at the Natural History Museum
29th April 2013
On Tuesday 23rd April, our Reception class took an exciting trip to the Natural History Museum where they took on the role of explorers. Equipped with an explorer hat and a pair of binoculars, the children carried out activities led by their teachers across the museum.
The explorer activities they took part in as they discovered more about dinosaurs, reptiles, human biology, marine invertebrates, birds, ecology and creepy crawlies helped to develop in pupils the scientific skills of observing, comparing and communicating. The children developed these skills through dressing up, role play and in completing their Explorer Passports, where they discussed and recorded some of the skills they used and the animals they saw on the trip.
A special thank you also goes to Rhian Lloyd who accompanied the trip as a parent volunteer.
